AbstractThe success of the client/server paradigm for modern networked telemetry systems continues to stress the LAN that carries data generated from the acquisition front ends to the display workstations and the file servers on the LAN. As the number of LAN-attached devices such as Loral's System 500 Model 550 (Loral 550) telemetry front end, workstations, and file servers grows beyond two, the Ethernet LAN collision rates increase and the throughput slows down. At what point the network performance declines is a function of the specific application bandwidth demands required. This paper describes a new method for boosting LAN performance by providing Ethernet switching and protocol filtering. The performance of the LAN is critical to the performance of the complete telemetry enterprise architecture.
