Title: Delay time computation for an active star topology local area network

Abstract: Fiber optic local area networks are nowadays widely available for data transport. Different topologies have been proposed, such as a bus, a ring or a star. A star topology, called Hubnet, has been developed at the University of Toronto. It uses a medium access protocol in which collisions are avoided, i.e. the throughput is an increasing function of the offered load. A model is developed in which the delay is investigated as a function of the throughput. The model is compared with a regenerative stochastic analysis and is validated by means of a simulation model and real-life measurements.
