The FDDI-II is a high speed and flexible backbone LAN. It can divide the capacity into one packet-switched channel with flexible bandwidth and up to 16 isochronous channels which may be allocated for a variety of real-time services such as video and voice. How to allocate and maintain isochronous bandwidth is an important issue for supporting good services to users. The FDDI-II standard proposed a centralized scheme to achieve this goal. In this paper, we propose a new scheme in a distributed fashion for the management of isochronous bandwidth. Based on our scheme, the network can support various services in a more efficient way.
