Abstract:

The IEEE 802.4 token bus defines both synchronous and asynchronous message access classes. Their performance is compared for networks implementing a single message class. Throughput bounds are derived from the access class timer. It is shown that for some configurations the asynchronous class yields lower observable message delays. Mean observable delay is minimized by allowing each Medium
