The fiber distributed data interface (FDDI) follow-on local area network (FFOL) work was initiated in February 1990 by Task Group X3T9.5 of Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X3 to establish requirements and formal projects for a next-generation LAN. The background for startup of the FFOL project, including its requirements and current status, are presented. It is shown that the higher performance of FFOL and its ability to handle all FDDI data formats will allow its use as a backbone to existing FDDI installations. FFOL will also be used as a replacement for FDDI and other LANs when its higher performance is required.<>
