Summary:
The primary emphasis of this thesis is to study the behavioral characteristics of Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) and Distributed Queue Dual Bus (DQDB) High Speed Local Area Networks (HSLANs). An FDDI architecture with passive interfaces is proposed to provide a reliable and efficient network topology. This network architecture outperforms the existing FDDI architecture with active interfaces in terms of small asynchronous packet delays and high asynchronous packet throughput. The design and implementation issues involved in the design of the hierarchical (multi-level) DQDB and FDDI networks are also presented. The hierarchical network architecture provides modularity and scalability with respect to speed and the number of users. Simulation models are developed for each of these network architectures to study their performance. Simulation results are presented in terms of medium access delay, throughput, and packet delays.
