Consider a simplified time slotted MAC protocol, where each host always has data to send and transmits with probability $p$ = $0.2$ in every slot. There is no backoff and one frame can be transmitted in one slot. If more than one host transmits in the same slot, then the transmissions are unsuccessful due to collision. What is the maximum number of hosts which this protocol can support if each host has to be provided a minimum throughput of $0.16$ frames per time slot?
very imp line
if each host has to be provided a minimum throughput of 0.16 frames per time slot
then n host = 0.16n
Thanks for explaining, very good explanation.
