Paper Abstract

For a local area medical network, the performance of transfer protocols on top of the standard LAN protocols is explored. In this simulation the medical LAN is FDDI at 100 Mbps and the transfer protocols to be investigated are the commonly available TCP/IP and the relatively new, lightweight XTP. The performance measures used for their comparison are response time for an image and total transfer time for a series of images in one examination The image workloads ranged from current, potential digital image loads to larger image transmission loads in the future. Two different values for FDDI's target-token-rotation-time were also explored. Contrary to expectations XTP using less overhead bits than TCP/IP did not greatly outperform TCP/IP.
