An Integrated Approach to Distributed Demand Assignment in Multiple-Bus Local Networks
May 1989 (vol. 38 no. 5)
pp. 679-695
Multiple-bus local networks (MBLNs) provide an architecturally simple solution to serve high-reliability high-capacity local area networks applications. Access mechanisms for MBLNs possessing stability and favorable delay characteristics are developed. A technique is proposed that uses a single explicit token to achieve demand-assignment multiple access (DAMA) to arbitrate access on all buses i
