AbstractThis thesis is concerned with the design of a high-speed backbone network which provides a high bandwidth interconnection for various Personal Computer Networks (PC-Networks) with an integrated service of voice and data. With the advanced technology of optical fiber as the transmission medium, several different existing topologies and protocols are discussed for the backbone network design. The token ring protocol is simulated and evaluated to find out a suitable buffer size and the length of voice and data packet for backbone network. The Network II.5 simulation tool is applied to simulate the token ring simulation model with different parameters. The Network Interface Unit (NIU) is designed from the simulation results with a cost-effective consideration.

The Implications for Network Recorder Design in a Networked Flight Test Instrumentation Data Acquisition SystemCranley, Nikki; ACRA Control (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2011-10)The higher bandwidth capacities available with the adoption of Ethernet technology for networked FTI data acquisition systems enable more data to be acquired. However, this puts increased demands on the network recorder to be able to support such data rates. During any given flight, the network recorder may log hundreds of GigaBytes of data, which must be processed and analyzed in real-time or in post-flight. This paper describes several approaches that may be adopted to facilitate data-on-demand data mining and data reduction operations. In particular, the use of filtering and indexing techniques that may be adopted to address this challenge are described.
The Implications for Network Switch Design in a Networked FTI Data Acquisition SystemCranley, Nikki; ACRA Control (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2011-10)Switches are a critical component in any networked FTI data acquisition system in order to allow the forwarding of data from the DAU to the target destination devices such as the network recorder, PCM gateways, or ground station. Commercial off the shelf switches cannot meet the harsh operating conditions of FTI. This paper describes a hardware implementation of a crossbar switching architecture that meets the reliability and performance requirements of FTI equipment. Moreover, by combining the crossbar architecture with filtering techniques, the switch can be configured to achieve sophisticated forwarding operations. By way of illustration, a Gigabit network tap application is used to demonstrate the fundamental concepts of switching, forwarding, crossbar architecture, and filtering.
FLEXIBLE NETWORK TRANSCEIVER NEXT GENERATION TELEMETRY NETWORKINGBrown, K. D.; Klimek, John; NNSA; JHU-APL (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2005-10)This paper describes the Flexible Telemetry Transceiver (FNT)-a modular, scalable, standards-based, software configurable, microwave wireless telemetry network transceiver. The FNT enables flexible, high-rate, long-range, duplex, network services across multipoint to multipoint wireless channel.
