IEEE 802.17 is a standardized ring topology network architecture, called the Resilient Packet Ring (RPR), to be used mainly in metropolitan and wide area networks. The standard calls for establishing rings utilizing uniform links of the same capacity. The impact of using different capacity links on the same ring has not been investigated before from the ring utilization and fairness point of view. This paper investigates supporting non-uniform links in RPR.
