Description / Abstract:

This part of ISO/IEC 9314 specifies a hybrid ring control (HRC) protocol which provides a mode of operation in which both packet switched and isochronous data are transmitted within the same special frame structure, called a cycle. HRC is designed to operate with the existing media access control (MAC), physical layer (PHY), and physical medium dependent (PMD) layers of the FDDl protocol.

The HRC is composed of the hybrid multiplexer (H-MUX) and the isochronous media access control (1- MAC) protocols. The H-MUX integrates packet and isochronous data into cycles which it transmits onto and receives from the medium using the services of the physical layer. The I-MAC provides separate transmission channels for the transfer of user isochronous data streams. The format, clocking and synchronization of cycles, and the operation and interfaces of the H-MUX and I-MAC are defined by this part of ISO/IEC 9314. These interfaces include the interface to the FDDl station management (SMT) protocol.

The HRC is designed to support various transmission rates, from 100 Mbps upwards, in increments of 6,144 Mbps. All transmission rate dependent parameters defined in this part of ISO/IEC 931 4 assume a transmission rate of 100 Mbps.

Stations composed of FDDl and HRC entities are referred to as FDD1-II stations. The FDDl packet MAC (P-MAC) and the HRC components, and their architectural relationship to LLC and a circuit switching Multiplexer (CS-MUX) are illustrated in figure 1 - This figure does not imply an implementation configuration

FDDI-II networks consist of FDDI-II stations. Interoperability between FDDl and FDDI-II stations on the same network is provided in HRC basic mode, which only supports packet transmission.

The set of FDDl standards, ISO/IEC 931 4, specifies the interfaces, functions, and operations necessary to ensure interoperability between conforming FDDl implementations. This part of ISO/IEC 931 4 specifies a hybrid ring control protocol: HRC. Conforming implementations may employ any design technique that does not violate interoperability.
