Can anyone help me with this problem? I am about to pull my hair out on this one. I’ve solved for PROP of the 150m and the ring, the TRANSP (or TRANSD), and the TRANST. How can I get to the solution? Anyway thanks for any help and here is the problem:
A Token Ring Network using RAT has 128 Data Transmitting Elements w/ an average of 75 meters of copper cabling between successive DTEs. Stations transmit at 4 Mbps. Frames are 1600 bits. Token is 40 bits. Stations may transmit seven consecutive frames before releasing the token. What is the minimum time to transmit a one megabit file to a DTE located 150 meters away? Ignore other overhead and repeater delays.
