This paper is concerned with the use of optical-fiber and optoelectronic technology for the implementation of local area networks. For the purposes of this paper, we define a local area network as an information transport system which provides connectivity amongst distributed communicating entities within a structure (room, building); within a campus or an office complex; or within a geographical area about the size of a United States local access and transport area (LATA). This paper focuses on the subject of network protocols; i.e., how do we implement the orderly sharing of network resources.
