An analysis of an event driven local area network protocol for special purposes in industrial applications is represented. The analysis is performed using the specification language ESTELLE/Ag and protocol analysis tool PRANAS-2. Validation was focused on the correctness media access algorithm, initialization of the protocol and recovery from error situations. The obtained simulation results can be used for comparison of the effectiveness of this protocol with other protocols.

The aggregate approach to the formal description, verification and simulation of computer network protocols is considered in the paper. With this approach, the offered design stages can be performed using a single mathematical scheme. The reachability analysis method and the program proof technique are viewed as methods for correctness analysis. The proposed approach for correctness analysis and model construction was used in creating the protocol analysis system PRANAS.
