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
