Title

Token-less Protocols for Fiber Optics Local Area Networks

Abstract

A family of LAN (Local Area Network) protocols is presented. The LAN consists of a pair of unidirectional fiber optic buses to which stations are connected via passive taps. The protocols provide round-robin bounded delay access to all stations. Contrary to most round-robin access schemes, the protocols do not require transmission of special packets (tokens);rather, they simply relyo n the detection of bus activity at each station. The performance of these protocols in various traffic conditions and system configurations is evaluated via analysis and simulation.
