    1. FDDI Overview

    The Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) local area network is a timed-token protocol and dual ringof trees topology. It operates at 100 mb per second and utilizes 62.5/125 micron graded index multi-mode fiber optic cabling. FDDI is a component part of LAN integration. It offers a tenfold increase inspeed over the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard.

    The following are the major design concepts that comprise the FDDI protocol.

    hardware connection

    ring initialization

    error detection

    token handling

    overall station management

    Four ANSI standard
