Paper Abstract

Performance evaluation of access methods for Local Area Networks (LAN), can only be partially studied by the mean of classical mathematical methods. Random simulation, based on discrete events, can take into account all the specifications without simplifying them. A study of the simulation language SLAM has demonstrated that this tool can be easily studied for this kind of problem. The first part of the paper will deal with a short description of SLAM facilities. In the second part, we will discuss of the modelling of the most common used methods for access control for LAN, token-passing and CSMA/CD. The third part will give examples of protocol analysis and model validations.
