Asynchronous packet-switched interconnection networks with decentralized control are very appropriate for multiprocessing and data-flow architectures. The authors present performance models of single- and multiple-ring networks based on token-ring, slotted-ring, and register-insertion-ring protocols. The multiple ring networks have the advantage of being reliable, expandable, and cost effective
