The features, architectures, and principles of key media access control (MAC) schemes for high-speed LAN and MAN systems are categorized and reviewed. These architectures are related to the hierarchical structure of a telecommunications network. An overview is given of the MAC protocol operation of key local- and metropolitan-area network systems, as defined by standards committees, covering current methods as well as approaches for future broadband integrated services digital networks. Modeling and analysis techniques are then reviewed for key classes of relevant MAC schemes, including fixed-assignment time-division-multiaccess (TDMA) schemes; demand-assignment reservation schemes, involving, in particular, pure packet-switched, pure circuit-switched and hybrid-switched integrated-services demand-assignment TDMA and time-division-multiplexing structures; demand-assigned polling procedures; and random-access policies
