28 May 2013 Protocol-level noise analysis of networked systems based on simulation/analytical approach
Author Affiliations +
Reliability and noise tolerance represent important requirements for digital networked systems, especially in critical working conditions. These issues mostly concern the communication tasks between the network nodes, which are usually implemented on the basis of formal protocol rules. A challenging target for a reliability analysis is to provide comprehensive evaluations and acceptably accurate results. However, the current complexity of many network applications entails relevant limitations to this possibility. In this paper we present a novel system-level methodology for noise analysis of digital networked systems. In our research we have defined a simulation/analytical approach entirely based on the protocol specifications and capable to address a fast and comprehensive study of the reliability properties. The proposed methodology is illustrated through a case study on the MOST 150 protocol, which is currently used to realize multimedia networks in automotive contexts.
