Abstract

The DUAL network offers both conventional (logical lines, X25, ISO 8802.3) and advanced (multicast, synchronization) services. It is based on multi- microprocessors nodes interlinked by means of fiber optics trunks. The DUAL ring is going to be installed in a campus of several km**2, interconnecting up to 40 buildings and serve as the backbone network for a number of other networks and as a test bed for the implementation of "second generation" teleinformatics services.
