A network with bandwidth of 10 Mbps can pass only an average of 15,000 frames per minute with each frame carrying an average of 8,000 bits. What is the throughput of this network ?

1. 2 Mbps
2. 60 Mbps
3. 120 Mbps
4. 10 Mbps

In data transmission, throughput is the amount of data moved successfully from one place to another in a given period of time,
and typically measured in bits per second (bps), or in megabits per second (Mbps) or gigabits per second (Gbps).
Here, Throughput = 15000 x 8000/60 = 2 Mbps

In the given question 15,000 frames per minute with each frame carrying an average of 8,000 bits

But the bandwidth is give Mbps so that we have to convert the give Data (frame in per seconds rate )

1 min -----------------------> 60 seconds

So that data transfer in 1 seconds-------> (15000*8000)/60=2000000 bps =2Mbps
