In a TDM medium access control bus LAN, suppose the channel has a effective bandwidth of 10Mbps and each station has effective throughput of 1Mbps, then what is the maximum number of stations allowed ?
Here the answer is 10/1 = 10. I don't understand the term "maximum number of stations allowed" in TDM.
If we are dividing both the bandwidths then it means that we are considering the possibility of all stations transmitting together and hence we are saying only 10 stations can transmit at a time.
But in TDM, only one station is allowed to transmit data at a time right ? So how does dividing the bandwidths make sense here?
