Consider the attached image, in which a single router is transmitting packets, each of length L bits, over a single link with transmission rate R Mbps to another router at the other end of the link.
Suppose that the packet length is L= 12000 bits, and that the link transmission rate along the link to router on the right is R = 10 Mbps.
(a) What is the transmission delay (the time needed to transmit all of a packet's bits into the link)?
(b) what is the maximum number of packets per second that can be transmitted by the link?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 20, 2018, 12:30 pm ad1c9bdddf
a. The transmission delay is the time needed to transmit all the bits of 1 packet to the link. We ...
The solution computes the one-hop transmission delay 2. The maximum number of packets per second that can be transmitted by the link are determined.
