I am trying to come up with a good data-rate formula for a system. The system sends out 'x' symbols per transaction. The transactions take place sequentially, but there is a delay 'z' between them. 'z' is variable and can even be pseudo-random. Also each transaction takes a time as well, but that time is constant.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I tried to derive a formula for symbols sent by a time 't' (in seconds): sent_t = ts(transactions/second) - zt, but that didn't quite work out. Where can I go from here?

Since 'z' can be random, I can either make 'z' constant for the formula, or make the formula an average data-rate...

Thank you
