The design and implementation of the Cambridge ring protocols Wong, Julian Hong Pak
Protocol implementation is characterized by various issues such as concurrency, time-critical responses, and asynchronous events. Such issues would be easier to resolve if the underlying operating system provides a hospitable environment that include an efficient interprocess communication facility. Most operating systems, however, do not provide such an environment. This thesis presents an implementation and discusses what has been learned -in implementing the Byte Stream and the Basic Block protocols of the Cambridge Ring on a LSI 11/23 computer running the Unix.V7 operating system.
