Paper Abstract

We investigate the throughput performance of networks interconnected through a bridge under real-time traffic environment. Throughput characteristics versus input traffic rate are shown with the variation of node spacing for fixed number of nodes in each of the rings. Certain buffer management algorithms which allocate the buffer space of the bridge dynamically are also studied. The algorithms are basically aimed at maximization of buffer usage. The networks are connected with each other through a bridge which is not in-j volved in correcting errors in the packets rather it simply acts as a store and forward device.
