Optimization of a Topologically Tree-Based Local Area Network
In Search of the Most Versatile Local Area Network (LAN) Available, We Discovered a Topologically Tree-Based LAN Proposed by Lipovski, Goyal and Malek to Be Most Adaptable to the Various Purposes and Applications Desirable within a LAN Environment. in Addition to Versatility, the Network Considered Here Offers the Advantages of a High Degree of Fail-Softness-And Thus Reliability-Simplicity in the Access Protocol, High Bandwidth Utilization, Low-Delay Characteristics, and Modularity-Which Ensures Future Expansion and Ease of Installation and Maintenance. Questions Relating to Features Critical to the Optimal Design and Use of Such a LAN Are Analyzed and Answered. Key Mechanisms Investigated Include Fanouts and Partitions, Delays and Degradation. © 1988.
