Consider a 100mbps token ring network with 10 stations having
a ring latency of 50¹s (the time taken by a token to make one
complete rotation around the network when none of the stations is
active). A station is allowed to transmit data when it receives the
token, and it releases the token immediately after transmission.
The maximum allowed holding time for a token (THT) is 200¹s.
(i) Express the maximum e±ciency of this network when only a
single station is active in the network.
(ii) Find an upper bound on the token rotation time when all
stations are active.
(iii) Calculate the maximum throughput rate that one host can
achieve in the network.
