Token ring networks differ in the manner in which acknowledgements are handled. In Newhall rings, acknowledgements of data packets are either sent as independent packets or piggybacked on returned data packets. In acknowledgement rings, there is an acknowledgement field in each data packet. The authors present an empirical formula that predicts the average network access delay in networks where
