Paper Abstract

The new requirements of Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN) have resulted in the emergence of new data transport technology, Resilient Packet Ring (RPR). The Key performance objective of RPR is to simultaneously achieve high bandwidth utilization, spatial reuse, and fairness. In this paper, a Rate Estimation Based Fairness Algorithm (REBFA) in Resilient Packet Rings is described and simulations are given to prove REBFA can achieve better performance than the fairness algorithm described in draft of IEEE standard for RPR.
