You are designing a link layer protocol for a link with bandwidth of $1$ Gbps ($10^9$ bits/second) over a fiber link with length of $800$ km. Assume the speed of light in this medium is $200000$ km/second. What is the propagation delay in this link?

  1. $1$ millisecond
  2. $2$ milliseconds
  3. $3$ milliseconds
  4. $4$ milliseconds

Propagation delay : Time taken by the first bit to travel from sender to receiver end of the link.

Propagation delay = distance/transmission speed = d/s

Propagation delay = 800km/200000km/sec

                                  =4ms

1 sec =1000 mil sec

and propagation delay=distance/velocity

here distance=800 km and velocity=200000 km/sec

so, Tp=800/200000=1/250 sec

1/250 *1000=4 mil sec

Propagation delay : Time taken by the first bit to travel from sender to receiver end of the link.

Propagation delay = distance/speed of the medium = d/s

Propagation delay = 800km/200000km/sec

                                 =(800/200000)sec

                                =(800/200)milliseconds

                                =4 milliseconds

A fully connected network topology is a topology in which there is a direct link between all pairs of nodes. Given a fully connected network with $n$ nodes, the number of direct links as a function of $n$ can be expressed as $\frac{n(n+1)}{2}$ $\frac{(n+1)}{2}$ $\frac{n}{2}$ $\frac{n(n-1)}{2}$

Consider the following two statements with respect to IPv4 in computer networking: P: The loopback (IP) address is a member of class B network. Q: The loopback (IP) address is used to send a packet from host to itself. What can you say about the statements P and Q? P – True; Q – False P – False; Q – True P – True; Q – True P – False; Q – False
