Time required to reach destination of first packet  goes the normal way (.ie including time for all transmission, switch delay, propagation delay and all that )  and after the first packet is received, remaining packets would require only transmission time .

Is it the right concept that I am having regarding pipelining in Computer network.

Actually in case of packet switching we generally neglect all delays except transmission delay because they are very small .Time taken for first packet will be =number of hops*transmission time and all other packets will follow the first packet in pipelining manner and each will have time=transmission time.

Thanks a lot for your answer ,  you are right.but  what would happen if we have similar scenario that is mention in the gate question that i refereed in my question but only difference in transmission delay ?

What would happen in such case ?


in such cases you can solve with given informations by including all type of delays
so pipelining concept applicable only when we have common transmission time in complete network ?
you can say this but i am not confirmed
