Zhang, S., Burns, A. and Cheng, T.H. (2002) Cycle-time properties of the timed token medium access control protocol. IEEE Transactions on Computers. pp. 1362-1367. ISSN 0018-9340Full text available as:
We investigate the timing properties of the timed token protocol that are necessary to guarantee synchronous message deadlines. A tighter upper bound on the elapse time between the token's lth arrival at any node i and its (l + v)th arrival at any node k is found. A formal proof to this generalized bound is presented.
