Analysis of Local Area Networks (LANs)
Objectives: Although local area networks
are widely used, their analysis is still difficult. Formulae have not
yet been developed which will provide performance figures for a range
of terminals and computers attached to the network. Using a number of
reasonable approximations, this work is developing several relatively
simple models which will eventually be applied to the evaluation of
local area networks.
