14.6 100-Mbps Configuration Guidelines: Model 2

Finding the Worst-Case Path

You begin the process of checking your network by finding the path with the longest round trip time and largest number of repeaters between two stations (DTEs). In some cases you may decide that you have more than one candidate for worst-case path in your system. If that's the case, identify all the paths through your network that look like they are worst-case, then do the calculations for each worst-case path you have found. If any path exceeds the limits for round trip timing or interframe gap, then the network system does not pass the test.
