Application of the Equilibrium Point Analysis to Ring Networks -Slotted Rings and Register Insertion Rings -

Proc. International Conference on Communication Technology (ICCT'94),pp.609-614(1994)

This paper extends the application of an analytical method called equilibrium point analysis (EPA) to slotted rings and register insertion rings. In particular, we take a new approach to modeling and analysis of register insertion rings that is quite different from all previous studies using EPA. The analytical results are shown to be accurate by comparing them with simulation results. We also compare the performance of the two rings and the RIS ring, which we analyzed before, to determine what is the most suitable protocol for a given traffic environment.
