Abstract:

This is a final report on the investigation of adaptive gigabit fiber optics local area network. The following tasks were completed a exploration of tree topologies with passive taps Tree-Net, b investigation of novel, adaptive access scheduling mechanisms Virtual Queue, c use of time division slot switching for the interconnection of FOLANs and the implementation of regular network topologies e.g., Manhattan grid, d use of Wavelength Division Multiplexing WDM in order to increase the throughput capacity and functionality of Tree-Net, e development of a simple from the implementation standpoint and yet efficient protocol - RATO-NET - for a twin, unidirectional fiber bus architecture, and f implementation of an experimental RATO-NET, and comparison of the experimental results with analysis simulation.
