The data link layer uses a fixed-size sliding window protocol, where the window size for the connection is equal to twice the bandwidth-delay product of the network path. Consider the following three scenarios, in each of which only the given parameter changes as specified (no other ... the minimum value of the round trip time $R$ increases to $1.8R$; the window size $W$ decreases to $W/3$

Consider a very large network $10000$ routers. Two host $A$ and $B$ connected with this network. Host $A$ sends a data to host $B$. and after some unit of time host $A$ receives $ICMP$ time exceed message for the samedata packet. The number of router ... some distance some ICMP message generated? Say if $ICMP$ message generated in $9999th$ router, then where it give error of time exceed message?

Visit the Selective Repeat Java applet at the companion Web site. Have the source send five packets, and then pause the animation before any of the five packets reach the destination. Then kill the first packet and resume the animation. Describe what happens. Repeat ... . Describe again what happens. Finally, try sending six packets. What happens? How selective repeat and go back-n is different?

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. What is N ... 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.

When circuit switching is used, how many users can be supported? For the remainder of this ... are transmitting simultaneously. (Hint: Use the binomial distribution.) Find the probability that there are 21 or more users transmitting simultaneously.
