Definition Edit

FDDI (acronym for "Fiber Distributed Data Interface") is

a network based on dual counter-rotating 100 Mbps token rings. The physical layout is two strands of optical fiber powered by light emitting diodes at 1,300 nanometers. FDDI uses the token passing algorithm to pass packets, which may be no larger than 4,500 bytes each. Maximum number of connections is 1,000 (500 dual connected stations). Maximum ring perimeter is 200 kilometers, with the maximum distance between stations of 2 km.[1]
