I have a Poisson-based question that I am not sure how to approach and solve. A processor receives groups of bits with a Poisson arrival rate of L. The probability of an error in receiving an erroneous bit is p. The number of bits in a group of bits is Poisson with mean M. If there is no error correction (meaning retransmission) allowed, at what rate do groups of bits get to the processor successfully? Help, I'm not sure how to solve or approach!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
