Abstract [en]

Switched Ethernet is an Ethernet LAN that uses switches to connect individual nodes.

This is popular because of its effective and convenient way of extending the bandwidth of

existing Ethernets. Switched Ethernet is being considered by the industry community because

of its open standardization, cost effectiveness, and the support for higher data rates up to

10Gbps. Even though many special-purposed solutions were proposed to support time

constrained communication over Switched Ethernet, still there were some doubts about the

real time handling capability of Switched Ethernet. To achieve reliable transmission

guarantees for real time traffic over Switched Ethernet, it is important to measure the

performance of Switched Ethernet networks for real time communication. In this thesis work

we have observed the average end-to-end packet delay for real time traffic over a Switched

Ethernet by simulation, which is very much essential for real time communication in

industrial applications, where the communication is time-deterministic. In our thesis we used

FCFS priority queuing in both the source nodes and switch. In this thesis we also discussed

about the feasibility analysis for fixed sized frames and some traffic handling methods. We

used 100mbp/s single full duplex Ethernet switch for our simulation. Finally simulation

analysis and simulation results are discussed. Our purpose of simulation of Switched Ethernet

networks is of good importance for the real time industrial applications.
