Paper Abstract

Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) specified by IEEE 802.17 is a new standard for Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs). One of RPR's characteristics is that it can support three priorities traffic in a single datapath, i.e., class A, class B and class C, ranging from high priority to low priority, respectively. Different entities such as shaping, scheduling, fairness, topology and protection coordinate to guarantee the Quality of Service (QoS) for different services. Various pieces of the datapath in RPR are tied together through logical queues, thus we investigate the datapath from the view of logical queues in this paper. With a detailed analysis of the MAC shaping mechanism in RPR, we propose some improvement to achieve better transport performance for RPR's three priorities traffic. Simulation results show that our improvement is efficient.
