7.7 A Complex Model 2 Configuration Example

Since the left and right end segments in our worst-case path are different media types, we need to do the path delay calculations twice. We first calculate the total path delay using the 10BASE2 segment as the left end segment and the 10BASE-T segment as the right end. Then we swap their places and make the calculation again, using the 10BASE-T segment as the left end segment this time, and the 10BASE2 segment as the right end segment. The largest value that results from the two calculations is the one that we must use in verifying the network.
