Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI)

Page 3: Fddi & Gigabit Ethernet

Token Ring

Page 4: Fddi & Gigabit Ethernet

Before FDDI

• Groups that previously had no need for communication now want network connections.

• Existing token ring and Ethernet backbones that are interconnected are now reaching their capacity.

• Applications require increasing bandwidth, security, and fault tolerance.

Page 5: Fddi & Gigabit Ethernet


• What is FDDI?- specifies a 100-Mbps token-passing- dual-ring LAN- using fiber-optic cable

• Bandwidth Supported – 200Mbps• Coverage – 200 km

- Multimode -> 2km- Single mode -> 60km

• Developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) X3T9.5 standards committee in the mid-1980s.

Minimum Ethernet Frame Length issue

• When link speed increases from 100 Mbps to 1000 Mbps, for half-duplex CSMA/CD to work well (to be able to detect collision– Reduce the network size by a factor of 10 to only

20 meter• Not acceptable

– Or increase the minimum Ethernet frame length by a factor of 10• Network efficiency will decrease.• Higher layer protocols needs to be modified.

Page 19: Fddi & Gigabit Ethernet

Carrier Extension• Gigabit Ethernet does not want to modify

application programs. – We want application programs to still use 64 bytes as

the minimum frame size. Ideally, they should not need to know whether they are using Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet.

• However, to be able to detect collision, the minimum frame size must be enlarged from 64 bytes to 512 bytes (4096 bits).

• Carrier extension is introduced to insert padding at the MAC layer so that every transmitted frame is at least 512 bytes.

12- 19

Page 20: Fddi & Gigabit Ethernet

Frame Bursting

• Although carrier extension solves the collision detection problem, the link utilization can be very low. – If every transmitted frame is a minimum-sized

frame, because in every transmitted 512 bytes, there are only 64 useful bytes. The effective link utilization is only 64/512 = 12.5%

• Frame bursting is introduced to improve link utilization.

12- 20

Page 21: Fddi & Gigabit Ethernet

Frame Bursting

• If the source host has many small frames to send, it can send them in a burst after a MAC arbitration.

• Except for the first frame, other frames sent in a burst need not be carrier-extended.

• If the first frame is larger than 512 bytes, it need not be carrier-extended.

• The burst can be as long as 8192 bytes.

12- 21

Page 22: Fddi & Gigabit Ethernet

Why Doing Carrier Extension for the First Frame in a Burst?

• First, if there is no carrier extension, when collision happens, the sending host may have sent out many small frames. If the sending host resends all frames that have been sent, two problems may occur:– They may already be removed from the buffer.– The receiver may receive duplicate frames.

• Second, if there is carrier extension and collision is detected in this period, the sending host knows that only the first frame should be retransmitted.

• Third, if there is carrier extension and there is no collision detected in this period, the sending host can be assured that no collision will happen in the future. 12- 22

Gigabit Ethernet over copper

• Cable configuration – 1000BASE-T provides 1Gbps Ethernet signal transmission over four pairs of Category-5 UTP cable. 250Mbps per wire pair multiplied by 4 pairs = 1000Mbps

• Distances – The copper standard covers cabling distances of up to 100 meters, or networks with a diameter of 200 meters (assumes 100 meters in two directions from a switch).

• Half duplex and CSMA/CD – Although the standard includes half-duplex operation, few Gigabit products support half duplex to date. Full duplex is preferred to maximize performance. Gigabit Ethernet uses the CSMA/CD protocol only when running in half-duplex mode.

• Full duplex and flow control – In full duplex, CSMA/CD collision detection is impractical. Instead, flow control methodology is used to avoid congestion and overloading.

• The cost of a 1000BASE-T network adapter is much cheaper than that of a 1000BASE-X network adapter.

Advantages• Increased bandwidth for higher performance and elimination of

bottlenecks• Full-duplex capacity, allowing the effective bandwidth to be virtually

doubled• Aggregating bandwidth to multi- Gigabit speeds using Gigabit server

adapters and switches• Low cost of acquisition and ownership• Full compatibility with the large installed base of Ethernet and Fast

Ethernet nodes• Transferring large amounts of data across a network quickly
