Abstract:
This thesis is concerned with the design of a high-speed backbone network which provides a high bandwidth interconnection for various Personal Computer Networks (PC-Networks) with an integrated service of voice and data. With the advanced technology of optical fiber as the transmission medium, several different existing topologies and protocols are discussed for the backbone network design. The token ring protocol is simulated and evaluated to find out a suitable buffer size and the length of voice and data packet for backbone network. The Network II.5 simulation tool is applied to simulate the token ring simulation model with different parameters. The Network Interface Unit (NIU) is designed from the simulation results with a cost-effective consideration.
