If a voice call has missing data it makes it hard to understand the speaker. Therefore, we commonly allow time for a limited number of retransmissions before playing the sound to the listener. If the network path (in each direction) has total packetization delay of 15ms, total propagation delay of 25ms, and queuing delay varying between 0ms and 10ms, how large (in milliseconds) does the playback buffer need to be if we want to allow for one retransmission?

The minimum e2e delay is 40ms. The maximum time for data to show up and be played back is 50ms (1st time, but missing) + 50ms (for the sender to find out) + 50ms (for the 2nd try to reach the receiver) = 150ms. Therefore, the playback buffer needs to hold at least 150ms - 40ms = 110ms of data.

In one of the quizes, they asked the following question : "A server typically listens for TCP connections on a particular port (e.g. 80 for HTTP or 22 for SSH). Which fields can the server use to distinguish packets for a particular client connection?" Please ... IP address from the packet received from the client... (After all, this destination IP address corresponds to the Server itself !).

Suppose that you have two nodes communicating with an AP that are hidden terminals to one another. The AP, except for acknowledgments, remains silent and there are no other transmitters in the network. The two nodes are both transmitting packets whose active ... nodes start transmitting at exactly the same time, what is the minimum number of backoffs before a packet is delivered successfully?
