A simulation study of the ethernet and gbram lan access protocols for networking real-time simulation devices
The purpose of this work is to evaluate the performance of two different network protocol access methods to interconnect real-time training simulators in a local area network (LAN) environment. The network protocols are the ETHERNET and the GBRAM (Group Broadcast Recognizing Access Method). A simulation study of the two protocols was made and a comparison of their performance was carried out. Then, the two schemes were slightly modified and their performance was compared to the performance of their original counterparts. In all cases, the protocols were tested for various traffic loads and number of simulators attached on to the network. Finally, conclusions were drawn about the capability of these protocols to support the communication requirements of real-time simulators in a LAN environment.
