The Cambridge Fast Ring is high-speed slotted ring. The features that make it suitable for use at very large transmission rates are the synchronous transmission, the simplicity of the medium-access-control protocol, and the possibility of immediate retransmission of erroneous packets. A novel analytical model of the Cambridge Fast Ring with normal slots is presented. The model is shown to be accurate and usable over wide range of parameters. A performance analysis based on this model is presented.
