The paper presents a network architecture and protocol to extend the facilities available on LAN's to a wider area. The proposal, based on a remote bridging technique, allows selective network reconfiguration and consequently high network availability and performability values. This make the system suitable for applications in environments characterized by hard reliability constraints. The proposed solution is assessed by modeling it through Markov chain theory.
