Find the value of p that maximizes this expression. This is not a good solution however because this would mean that the probability of transmitting is 1, so this would causes nothing to go through, so this cannot maximize the expression. Assume each node has an infinite number of packets to send. Each node attempts to transmit in each slot with a probability p.

Consider an application that transmits data at a steady rate for example, the sender generates an N-bit unit of data every k time units, where k is small and fixed. Also, when such an application starts, it will continue running for a relatively long period of time. Answer the following questions, briefly justifying your answer:. Would a packet-switched network or a circuit-switched network be more appropriate for this application? Suppose that a packet-switched network is used and the only traffic in this network comes from such applications as described above. Furthermore, assume that the sum of the application data rates is less than the capacities of each and every link.
Equation 1. Generalize this formula for sending P such packets back-to-back over the N links. The general case of sending one packet from source to destination over a path consisting of N links each of rates R. Review the car-caravan analogy in Section 1. Suppose the caravan travels km, beginning in front of one tollbooth, passing through a second tollbooth, and finishing just after a third tollbooth.
