Resilient Packet Ring Technology: An Introduction
The Resilient Packet Ring is a standard under development by IEEE and is used mainly in metropolitan and wide
area networks .The main objective of a RPR is to utilise the bandwidth effectively Spatial reuse and fairness .The current
technologies such as Gigabit Ethernet, SONET, and FDDI are not able to meet the current requirements and resilient packet
ring provides an alternate way to meet the required objectives. This paper reviews the architectural features and technologies
used in RPR. This article overviews how resilience is observed in RPR.
