Abstract

This paper proposes two access protocols for voice/data integration on ring networks. The first protocol is a hybrid scheme based on the slotted ring and the register insertion ring protocols. The second protocol is based on the standard token ring network. The central idea to both protocols is to provide decentralized priority to voice stations. Quick access to the transmission medium is guaranteed to all voice stations while still providing data stations with reasonable delay-throughput performance. Furthermore, both protocols can dynamically adapt to the voice traffic load. We develop analytical models for the proposed protocols to evaluate their performance. The analytical results have been validated through extensive simulation experiments. The results show that these two protocols perform better than some of the existing protocols. © 1992.
