Models for local area networks of the slotted ring style of architecture are developed and evaluated. The hardware protocol is modeled using a BCMP network. The Basic Block protocol of the Cambridge ring is modeled using an approximate solution method of the fixed-point type. A limited comparison between the Cambridge Ring and another ring architecture?the token ring?is carried out.
