Abstract

This article presents an overview of the main principles used in the resilient packet ring (RPR). This new ring network architecture is currently being standardized by the IEEE Working Group 802.17. Their goal is to provide a packet-based network technology — mainly to be used in metropolitan and wide area networks — with better efficiency, scalability and reduced costs compared to the existing circulit-oriented transmission network technology SONET/SDH.

Resilient Packet Ring — IEEE 802.17

Zusammenfassung

Der Beitrag stellt die in Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) verwendeten Prinzipien zusammen. Diese neue Ringarchitektur wird derzeit von der IEEE Working Group 802.17 standardisiert. Das Ziel ist, eine paketvermittelte Technologie für regionale und Weitverkehrsnetze zu entwickeln. Diese Technologie soil unter anderem bessere Effizienz, Skallerbarkeit und reduzierte Kosten im Vergleich zur Übertragungsnetztechnologie SONET/SDH bieten.
