A Multiclass Priority-Based Slotted-Ring LAN and its Analysis
August 1993 (vol. 42 no. 8)
pp. 1015-1020

A protocol for a slotted-ring local area network to handle two classes of jobs in which one class has preemptive priority over the other is presented. The detailed response time distribution analysis for different classes of jobs is given. It is shown that the modeling and analysis can be extended to multiclass jobs.
