How do you define the throughput of a network? Calculate the bandwidth x delay product for a 1.5Mbps T1 link through a geo stationary satellite at a height of 35,900 Kms. The only delay is the speed
of light propagation delay.
Assume a sliding window protocol for a 1 Mbps point to point link to the moon which latency of 1.25 seconds and each frame carries 1 KB of data. What is the minimum number of bits you
need for the sequence number.
Why does the 802.11 (Wifi) Frame format require four address fields. Explain with the frame format diagram.
Explain the sequence of events in the Ethemet protocol once a collision has been detected by a sending adapter. In this context clearly explain the reasoning behind the "exponential backoff"
Explain with suitable header diagrams how an IP packet of size 1420 bytes get fragmented when crossing a point to point link of MTU 532 bytes. (Only relevant fields may be shown in the header
Use the Distance Vector Routing Protocol to obtain a final routing table for node A in the following topology.
Explain the three way handshake in TCP using a state diagram that moves CLIENTS from active and passive open states to the ESTB state.
