Study on Fairness and Protection Behaviors of IEEE 802.17 Resilient Packet Ring in Metropolitan Area Networks

Abstract

IEEE 802.17 working group institutes a new Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) media access protocol for metropolitan backbone networks. The purpose of this technology is to utilize the characteristic of the ring topology to carry on packet transmission. RPR supports bridging other network protocols in the IEEE 802 families, and frames of different protocols over… (More)
