Performance issues of the FDDI-II protocol, an upward-compatible enhancement of the basic fiber distributed data interface (FDDI), are discussed. The main characteristics of the FDDI protocol are examined. The performance of FDDI-II is studied for scenarios including asynchronous traffic, synchronous traffic and isochronous traffic. The results make clear that basic FDDI meets the requirements imposed by traditional local area network (LAN) application and that from a performance point of view FDDI-II is an excellent candidate for complex communications environments. When compared to the distributed-queue-dual bus (DQDB) protocol, FDDI-II yields much better efficiency in traditional LAN applications
