Abstract

This paper describes the design parameters and the approaches used in the construction of a Local Network Interface (LNI). The LNI connects a network node (host) to the communications medium. The details of the design and implementation are presented, along with some rationale for the design choices. The design is biased towards implementation in Large Scale Integration (LSI), and allows variation in message format and transmission protocol. This freedom is explored in regard to building both ring networks, such as the Distributed Computer System (DCS), and contention nets, such as Ethernet.
