In the discussion of packet switching versus circuit switching with a 1 Mbps link. Users are generating data at a rate of 100 kbps when busy, but are busy generating data only with probability p = 0.1. Suppose that the 1 Mbps link is replaced by a 1 Gbps link.

  1. What is N, the maximum number of users that can be supported simultaneously under circuit switching?
  1. Now consider packet switching and a user population of M users. Give a formula (in terms of p, M, N) for the probability that more than N users are sending data.
