Unformatted text preview: CS 118 Spring 2008 : Problems Problem 1 Problem 1 Suppose nodes A and B are on the same 10Mbps Ethernet bus, and the propagation delay between the two nodes is 255 bit times. Suppose node A begins transmitting a frame and, before it finishes, node B begins transmitting a frame. Can A finish transmitting before it detects that B has transmitted? Why or why not? If the answer is yes, then A incorrectly believes that its frame was successfully transmitted without a collision. Hint: Suppose at time t = 0 bit time, A begins transmitting a frame. In the worst case, A transmits a minimum-sized frame of 512+64 bit times. So A would finish transmitting the frame at t = 512 + 64 bit times. Thus, the answer is no, if Bs signal reaches A before bit time t = 512 + 64 bits. In the worst case, when does Bs signal reach A? Problem 2 Consider a 100 Mbps 100BASE-T Ethernet with all nodes directly connected to a hub. To have an efficiency of 0.50, what should be the maximum distance between a node and the hub? Assume a frame length of 64of 0....
