Paper Abstract

The growing size and complexity of FDDI-based networks has made computer simulation the most effective tool for analyzing such networks. This paper demonstrates how the block oriented network simulator (BONeS) can be used to study the steady state performance of several FDDI LANs. The simulation studies are designed to show how various parameter settings and network configurations can affect delay, throughput, and utilization of such computer networks. The performance of the asynchronous priority scheme is studied in the presence of synchronous traffic. A simulation of a single-priority campus area network (CAN) using FDDI as a backbone is also presented.
