Question 65

A single server and multiple clients are connected to a 100 Mbps LAN. At the peak of business activity, 600 KB of data per client is downloaded from the server every minute. What is the number of clients who can operate simultaneously without experiencing any adverse effects on their processing during the peak time? For this problem, assume the transmission efficiency of the LAN is 50%, that the internal processing time of the server and clients can be ignored, that 1 Mbps = 10 6 bits/sec, and that 1 KB = 1,024 bytes.

a) 10
b) 610
c) 1,220
d) 4,880
