Executive Summary

It is well known that Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) offers an excellent cost-benefit and guarantees a reliable and powerful network. It is also fact that the FDDI is suitable for synchronous traffic because of the high speed and the performance guarantees it provides. However, these guarantees are achieved at the expense of asynchronous traffic because the synchronous messages are given highest priority over asynchronous messages, resulting in excessive delays and low throughput for asynchronous message.
