Abstract

A high-performance MAC protocol, called Prioritized Adaptive Cycle Cell Insertion (PACCI), especially advantageous to client-server-based gigabit LANs/MANs is presented. PACCI achieves bounded delay and high utilization regardless of the network size and load. In addition to providing fair access for regular nodes (e.g., clients) through regular cycles, PACCI offers prioritized access to privilege nodes (e.g., servers) through restricted cycles. The bandwidth allocation of the regular and restricted cycles is based on an analytic model in an effort to provide QoS guarantees in terms of normalized throughput under diver traffic loads. Simulation results that demonstrate the accuracy of the analysis and the superior performance of PACCI are presented.
