Question:21 | ISBN:9780132856201 | Edition: 6

Visit the Queuing and Loss applet at the companion Web site. What is the maximum emission rate and the minimum transmission rate? With those rates, what is the traffic intensity? Run the applet with these rates and determine how long it takes for packet loss to occur. Then repeat the experiment a second time and determine again how long it takes for packet loss to occur.

Are the values different? Why or why not?

Consider to visit the Queuing and Loss applet at the companion **Web site**:

The maximum emission rate =500 packets/s

The minimum transmission rate=350 packets/s

The traffic intensity=500/350

=1.42
