Characterizing the Maximum Queuing Delay of a Packet Switch

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The queuing delay which is suffered by a packet that is transiting a packet switch has the most adverse effect on the delay performance of the switch. Being able to estimate the maximum queuing delay which any packet may suffer in a packet switch will make it possible to design upper bounded end-to-end delay switched networks, which are very important in today's delay sensitive networks. In this paper, the authors have characterized the maximum queuing delay of a packet switch; a characterization, which is in consonance with the definition of maximum queuing delay in literature.
