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.

Except for these changes, the same basic method steps would be performed. Node 76B uses that slot for data it wishes to write onto Bus A. Metropolitan area networks Local area networks Networm protocols. First, the access control field structure of the presently defined DQDB system does not allow four levels of request and idle signals.

The impact of propagation delays is also reduced. Nodes in a DQDB network are connected in parallel to both of the unidirectional busses. The node will write data into the first available idle slot and then allow a number of idle slots to pass before it attempts to regain access to the second bus.

The algorithm was remarkable for its extreme simplicity.

The first step in the process begins when a cell is received on one of the busses, arbitrarily designated as Bus B. Netwogk DQDB may be thought of as two token rings, one carrying data in each direction around the ring. Ddb considered on its own, the same component is considered to have network status.

The method ddqdb above provides efficient utilization of DQDB busses in the type of system having a four bit request field in the access control field where each of the bits is assigned to a different access priority level. In a basic DQDB system, a node that has data to send on one of the busses, arbitrarily designated as Bus A, requests access to Bus A by writing a reservation bit into the next available cell on bus B.

The next available cell is one which, upon arrival at the node via Bus B, has a binary 0 in the reservation field bit.

The node concurrently looks for idle slots on the second bus.

Data is normally transported along each bus in successive fixed length slots. Netwok the local node does not require access at the priority level under consideration, the length of the received request string is preserved in the upstream direction. The cell is divided into a five byte header 64 and a forty-eight byte data or payload segment The count in the request string counter is compared to the DAR dqvb value in an operation The count at a particular node indicates, of course, ntework current number of nodes downstream of the particular node that are requesting access.

The figure does not show the cell delimiters and any data integrity checking characters that might be used as these are well known. For another, the method does not fully utilize available time slots and may not achieve fairness simply because it takes so long to work.

In this specification, the term slot is used to refer to the time segment in which data may be transported while the term cell is used to refer to the unit of data being transported in that slot. A single set is described below. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

If there are no pending downstream access requests at a higher priority level, as indicated by zero values in the local DAR registers for those priority levels, the local node may or may not be able to access Bus A depending on the results of the next operation The above description assumes a single priority system.

It then allows idle slots to pass to the downstream nodes to service their access requests before it attempts to regain access to the bus.

Thus, the current RQ count indicates the number of currently unsatisfied reservation requests for access to Bus A by nodes downstream on Bus A. DQDB networks dqb also be linked through a multiport bridge There are three salient points about the method. Bus A and Bus B function independently of one another, even though the timing for operations on both busses may be derived from a single timing source at one of the nodes.

These bits are not employed in the access control method to be described and will be ignored. First, each node counts the number of downstream nodes that are requesting access to Bus Ddb simply by counting the number of successive binary 1’s in the appropriate bit positions in the request fields of cells received on Bus B.


The nodes are connected in parallel to two unidirectional busses 46 or Bus A and 48 or Bus B. Each of dadb four bits in the reservation field indicates whether a downstream node has data to send.

The BWB method does not provide a complete solution to the unfairness problem. According to one proposed standard, each data cell is fifty-three bytes long. United States Patent A check 84 is made by the node to see if it requires access to Bus A at the priority level defined by the current bit position.

The steps beginning with operation 84 and ending with operations 87, 91 or 96 complete the process of controlling the upstream request sequence and check is then performed to see if all bits in the request field have been read.

Node 76B then changes the request bit pattern being transported on Bus B to a repeated pattern to notify node 76A that only two downstream nodes are still requesting access. Netaork telecommunicationa distributed-queue dual-bus network DQDB is a distributed multi-access network that a supports integrated communications using a dual bus and distributed queuing, b provides access to local or metropolitan area networksand c supports connectionless data transferconnection -oriented data transfer, and isochronous cqdb, such as voice communications.

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. A metropolitan area network is one which may provide integrated voice and data transmission services for different corporate or individual users within a limited geographic metropolitan area. In a multiple priority system, multiple counts are maintained, one for each priority level. Communications network having bit-mapped refresh cycle.

The local node monitors the busy bit of each cell it receives on Bus A in an operation
