    Distributed computing requirements are discussed, and distributed computing in FDDI (fiber distributed data interface) networks is considered. Three applications with different requirements are examined to show how the basic FDDI topology (a dual ring of trees) and mix of station types can he matched to the throughput and reliability requirements of particular applications. These applications are:... View full abstract»

    The timed token access method on which the FDDI (fiber distributed data interface) network is based is described. The two kinds of performance parameters, fixed and user-settable, that are used to study performance are discussed. Performance metrics are defined, and the performance is analyzed for asynchronous traffic, using simulation and analytical modeling. Guidelines for setting the target tok... View full abstract»

    The MODLINK (multichannel parallel optical data link) system is described. It provides 12 parallel data channels; one channel may be used for clock signal, and provisions are made for synchronizing the data channels with the clock. Additional MODLINK units can be linked in parallel for more channels. The system can handle data rates from DC to 200 Mb/s/channel in continuous or burst mode. Since th... View full abstract»

    The optical star network and its power budget and spectral-width limits are reviewed. A third capacity limit due to the bandwidth available within the switch for communicating the switch-control functions to the crosspoint elements of the switch is investigated. A pipelined switch processor and the communications bandwidth required within the switch to support the maximum amount of information tra... View full abstract»

    Photonic switches based on guided-wave lithium niobate technology are considered and one of the first applications, the distributed switching with centralized optics (DiSCO) experimental switching system, is described. This system interconnects commercial private branch exchanges (PBXs) through an 8*8 lithium niobate time-multiplexed switching network. It is shown that the dilated Benes architectu...

    Several properties of lasers used in high-speed optical transmission systems are described. The characteristics of the modulation bandwidth transfer function and the relaxation oscillation frequency, and factors that must be optimized to maximize the modulation bandwidth, are examined. The intensity noise spectral characteristics and the relationship to the modulation bandwidth are determined. The... View full abstract»
