Routes determination in multiple-ring networks

Reuven Cohen, Adrian Segall

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The issue of routing in multiple-ring networks is considered. A new bridge protocol for route determination in a multiple-ring network is introduced. Its main advantage is its communication efficiency: the number of frames used is the number of rings plus the number of bridges in the network, as opposed to the exponential function needed by the existing protocol. Some extensions of the protocol are given. The correctness proof for the new protocol is presented.
