Paper Abstract

The advantages of ring networks over bus networks are now well established. The main benefits are considered to be greater flexibility and less complexity together with the provision of higher data throughput with guaranteed maximum access times. However, when considering reliability, the obvious potential problem with the ring network is that of an open circuit or failure of a repeater in the ring. Either of these occurrences within a basic ring design would inevitably disrupt service.
