The Distributed Queue Dual Bus (DQDB) network has been adopted as the subnetwork for the IEEE metropolitan area network (MAN) standard. Since its. IEEE to protocols are only suited for “small” LANs. They cannot be used for very large but non-wide area networks. IEEE DQDB is designed. Distributed Queue Data Interface (DQDB) and put up as IEEE standard. network. The stations are attached to both the buses in parallel. Each bus.

If a check 80 shows a bit value of 1, the current count in the Downstream Access Request or DAR counter for the priority level associated with the bit is incremented in an operation The local node takes no action, other than to wait for the next cell on Bus B.

Except as noted below, the details of the access unit 50 are not important to an understanding of the present invention. To accomplish this, a check 93 is made to see whether the current request string count exceeds the DAR register value.

Conventionally, a binary 1 in bit position 70 indicates a busy or occupied cell while a binary 0 indicates an idle cell. To determine whether a sufficient number of idle slots have passed the local node, an idle slot count is maintained for the number of idle slots that have passed the local node since the last time it loaded data onto dqsb bus.

The three remaining bits in the access control field are reserved or perform defined functions that are not relevant to the present invention. The headers on the reverse bus communicated dqrb to be inserted in the distributed queue so that upstream nodes would know that they should allow DQDB cells to pass unused netsork the forward bus.

The new or all zero pattern notifies nodes 76A, 76B and 76C that there are dqqdb outstanding access requests for Bus A. If check 85 shows that the request string count equals the DAR register value, a binary 0 is forced into the passing bit position in operation 89 and the request string counter is reset to zero in an operation Access control method for DQDB network.

In an ideal system, the basic DQDB protocol described above would permit the first node with an access request to claim the first available slot and every slot would nrtwork perfectly utilized. The new pattern delivered to those nodes in four successive cells on Bus B takes the form of alternating 0’s and 1’s or Each node can read data being transported on a bus and can modify data as it passes the node on the bus; that is, can read from and write to the bus.

If the cell contains data written into the payload segment by an upstream node on Bus A, it is not available to the local node. In a multiple priority system, an RQ counter and a CD counter netdork assigned to each priority level.

The occurrence of the reset signals can lead to propagation and access delays. At each zero count, an idle slot is allowed to pass the node so that it can be used by a downstream node.

The number of idle slots neteork are allowed to pass equals the number of nodes downstream on the second bus for which the subject node has received access requests. The count at a particular node indicates, of course, the current number of nodes downstream of the particular node that are requesting access. The two busses, considered together, provide effective full duplex communications between any two nodes.

When the added binary 1 is detected at node 76B, that node also adds a binary 1 to the pattern it has been sending so that node 76A then receives a repeated pattern. It is assumed initially that none of nodes 76B through 76E is requesting access to Bus A but that node 76A is currently using every slot on Bus A.


The access control field for a cell includes a busy bit position 70 which indicates whether the cell’s payload segment is busy carrying data provided at an upstream node or idle. There are three salient points about the method. When considered on its own, the same component is considered to have network status. The node would also transmit an idle signal when access is no longer needed.

Node 76A then receives a repeated pattern. The operation of the RS counter is described later. In a multiple priority system, multiple counts are maintained, one for each priority level. Bus A and Bus B function independently of one another, even though the timing for operations on both busses may be xqdb from a single timing source at one of the nodes.

Thus, the current RQ count indicates the number of currently unsatisfied reservation requests for access to Bus A by nodes downstream on Bus A. The BWB method does not provide a complete solution to the unfairness problem.

DQDB networks may be linked through other known types of networks, such a high speed netwlrk switching network 14 or a circuit switched network At time T4, it is hetwork that a free or idle slot is made available to node 76B by node 76A. There is no wrapping of data from one of the busses to the other at any node, including the head and tail nodes.
