  1. A 1 Mbps satellite link connects two ground stations. The altitude of the satellite is 6000 km and speed of the signal is 3 × 10^8   m/s. What should be the packet size for a channel utilization of 50% for a satellite link using go-back-63 sliding window protocol? Assume that the acknowledgment packets are negligible in size and that there are no errors during communication.

They have provided the wrong solution. Answer must be 320 bits
no they are actually correct

we have to consider distance from a to satellite and from satellite to b

then tp = 40msec

and when we put efficiency as 1/2

1/2 = 62 / (1 + (2*40*10^3)/L)

after solving

L = 650.40 bits
therefore L = 81.3 Bytes

correct me if wrong

but in there answers they have multiplied it by 100 dont know why !!

almost similar question with proper explanation


1/2 = 62 / (1 + (2*40*10^3)/L)  -> 1/2 = 63 / (1 + (2*40*10^3)/L)

63 is the sender window size,which should be used in the formulae right?

they also did the same thing
good explanation there
Dont trust made easy answers.

@balchandar reddy san yea then ans becomes 79.68
thank you for pointing it out 

actually in made easy they took 62 that's why i mistakenly used 62
