    The way in which a Local Area Network access mechanism (Medium Access Control protocol) designed for a specific type of physical service can be used on top of another type of physical service is discussed using a particular example. In the example, an Ethernet physical layer is used to provide service to the Twentenet real-time access mechanism. Relevant Ethernet and Twentenet concepts are explained, the approach taken is introduced, and problems encountered, along with the actual synthesis of both networks, are described.
