Asynchronous Transfer Mode(ATM) considerations and delay

  1. Feb 17, 2008 #1
    Another key design decision for ATM is the size of the data field for fixed-size cells.
    Let us consider this decision from the point of view of efficiency and delay.
    (a) Assume that an extended transmission takes place, so that all cells are completely
    filled. Derive an expression for the efficiency N as a function of H and L.
    (b) Packetization delay is the delay introduced into a transmission stream by the need
    to buffer bits until an entire packet is filled before transmission. Derive an
    expression for this delay as a function of L and the data rate R of the
