The performance of a number of slotted-ring protocols supporting integration of synchronous and asynchronous traffic in high-speed local area networks (HSLANs) is evaluated. They are the Cambridge fast ring, a variant of the Cambridge fast ring, and Orwell. The performance of their basic access mechanisms is compared and contrasted with that of the multiple-token ring. The effect of a uniframe scheme for supporting synchronous traffic is examined. A delay analysis of the integrated-services slotted-ring protocols is presented.
