This paper discribes a shared medium access control protocol for residential home and small business customer ATM network application with distributed high-speed multimedia services. This protocol offers global fairness for the whole network with a CG (Centralized Grant) signal and, at the same time, offers local fairness between nodes with DG (Distributed Grant) signals. The DG signal is only meaningful to the next neighboring node. The local fairness is kept between two nodes in distributed way, but this distributed local fairness helps to keep the global fairness. Because the DG signal is related to the passed DG signal from the neighbor node. This protocol is rather simple but shows high performance than the already announced protocols.
