### Question

(a) Suppose N packets arrive simultaneously to a link at which no packets are currently being

transmitted or queued.Each packet is of length and the link has transmission rate R. What is

the average queuing delay for the N packets?

(b) Now suppose that N such packets arrive to the link every LN/R seconds.

What is the average queuing delay of a packet?

Calculate the average queuing delay:

### CroetCalc

a. What is the average queuing delay for the N packets? Should this question not be "What is the queuing delay of the Nth packet? If so then this is (N-1)*L/R

b. What is the average queuing delay of a packet? The average queuing delay for 1 packet when we have N packets will be (N-1)*(L/(2R))

Post the discussion to improve the above solution.
