This paper presents a novel approach for scheduling the IEEE 802.5 token ring. This approach not only guarantees deadlines for synchronous class messages, but also dramatically reduces asynchronous class response times. Further, highly responsive guaranteed service is introduced for alert class asynchronous messages. Conventional use of the IEEE 802.5 token ring standard guarantees synchronous communication services using Time Domain Multiplexing (TDM) techniques while relegating asynchronous… CONTINUE READING
