Abstract

The protocol is described. Packet access delay is the sum of request bus access delay and data bus access delay. An upper bound on data bus access delay is obtained that is equal to twice the propagation delay from the node to the most upstream node. The expected request bus access delay for Poisson offered traffic is the expected waiting time in a slotted M/D/1 non-preemptive priority queue, for which an expression is obtained. The upper bound on data bus access delay is smaller and the expected request bus access delay is larger at a more upstream node. A bandwidth balanced version of the protocol is also described, for which the upper bound continues to hold
