I have on my studies one exercise and I don't know how to solve it. What is the size of frame in result of collsion in token ring, where length of link is L = 6km, number of stations n = 50 and speed of transmission is 25Mbps. There is aplied rival algorithm with access to link. Could someone calculate it or simply explain?

  • Unfortunately, all "education, certification, or homework" questions are explicitly off-topic here. By the way, the advantage of token bus and token ring is that they do not have collisions because only the station holding the token can transmit. – Ron Maupin Jan 29 '18 at 19:50

Token ring uses (used) a token for arbitration/multiplexing - hence the name. There can be no collisions.
