The capabilities of a 16-Mb/s token ring to support multimedia applications, and simultaneously carry data and multimedia traffic are demonstrated. The token ring's priority mechanism makes it possible to effectively isolate multimedia and data traffic. Bandwidth management is then needed to allocate a guaranteed bandwidth to multimedia traffic. A simple form of bandwidth management limits the number of active multimedia sessions on a token ring segment. With bandwidth management implemented in a multimedia server, client/server multimedia applications on a single token ring segment can become a reality
