Multiple Logical Token-Rings in a Single High-Speed Ring

Abstract

The present paper describes a MAC protocol for a high-speed ring with multiple tokens. The purpose of this protocol is to increase the throughput and to improve the delay-throughput characteristic of high-speed token-rings. The main concept of the new MAC protocol is to maintain several logical token-rings in the single physical ring. Each logical ring has… (More)
