A token bucket scheme is used for traffic shaping. A new token is put into the bucket
every 5 μsec. Each token is good for one short packet, which contains 48 bytes of
data. What is the maximum sustainable data rate?

token rate =5 *$10^{-6}$ token par second

1 token can carry 48 bytes means one short packet

so data rate 48*5 *$10^{-6}$ bytes/sec

@Gurdeep Saini Is it actually Leaky Bucket? As the bucket's capacity is not mentioned?

Max rate=$\frac{384}{5*10^{-6}}$


=76.8 Mega bits per sec
