Consider Figure 1.19(b). Now suppose that there are M paths between the server and the client. No two paths share any link. Path k (k = 1, . . ., M ) consists of N links with transmission rates Rk1, Rk2, . . ., RkN . If the server can only use one path to send data to the client, what is the maximum throughput that the server can achieve? If the server can use all M paths to send data, what is the maximum throughput that the server can achieve?
