Summary:
In this thesis we have proposed and analyzed a new architecture for high speed fiber optic LANs/MANs, called the Dual Bus R-Net. The scheme is based on a slotted unidirectional dual bus structure. It uses a reservation mechanism to generate slotted frames on each bus. Frames consist of a reservation slot and one or many information slots. Stations reserve slots by transmitting reservation requests on the bus carrying information in the opposite direction. The scheme has the advantage of superior channel utilization, bounded delay, fair access to all stations, dynamic bandwidth allocation to network users, and implementation simplicity. Extensive simulations have been carried out to verify the characteristics of the network. Simulation results reinforce the initial claims of the advantages offered by Dual Bus R-Net. Performance analysis is presented in terms of network delay and channel utilization. Simulation results are compared with similar results of X-Net, R-Net, DQDB, and Expressnet.
