Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF A TOPOLOGICAL ARCHITECTURE TO MEET THE PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY AND SURVIVABILITY REQUIREMENTS OF INTEGRATED NETWORK DATA SYSTEMS. AN ORTHOGONAL MESH NETWORK ARCHITECTURE, BASED ON A 125 MBPS FIBER DISTRIBUTED DATA INTERFACE (FDDI) FIBER-OPTIC TOKEN PASSING BUS WILL BE DEFINED AND ANALYZED. A DISTRIBUTED RECONFIGURATION ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED AND VARIOUS ALTERNATIVE NETWORK CONFIGURATIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. PERFORMANCE SIMULATIONS WILL BE RUN USING A UNIQUE, EVENT-STEPPED MONTE CARLO SIMULATION MODEL DEVELOPED BY SYNETICS. THIS EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A MEASURE OF PERFORMANCE AND A COMPARISON OF THE RELIABILITY AND SURVIVABILITY OF VARIOUS NETWORK CONFIGURATIONS.
