Authors: R. Cohen and A. Segall
PDFCS0606.pdf
Abstract: The paper presents a new scheme for handling priorities in a token ring Local Area Network. The scheme of the IEEE -802.5 standard suffers from two principal drawbacks that are addressed in the present paper: it allows frame multiplication for a limited duration. and in some situations. a long time is required to achieve the desired priority level. This paper describes and proves a new priority mechanism that satisfies all properties of the standard, while effacing the abovementioned drawbacks.
