Next-generation networks are expected to support a wide variety of services. Some services such as video, voice, and plant control traffic have explicit timing requirements on a per-message basis rather than on the average. In this paper we develop a general model of reservation-based dual-link networks to support realtime communication. We examine the desirable properties of this network and the difficulties in achieving these properties. We then introduce the concept of coherence and develop a theory of coherent dual-link networks. Finally, we show that a coherent dual-link network can be analyzed as though it is a centralized system.
