This paper presents analytical performance evaluation of slotted rings based on the register insertion method. A multidimensional Markovian model of the system is formulated, and it is solved by using the equilibrium point analysis (EPA) method. The analysis carried out under the conditions that each node is provided with a finite buffer capacity that accommodates a single packet from the station, and that no assumption is made on the process of arriving packets from the upstream node. The results of this analysis are accurate at any loads, in comparison with simulation results.
