Determination of the End-to-End Delays of Any Switched Local Area Network

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In designing Switched Local Area Networks (Switched LANs), there is the inherent need of being able to compute all the end-to-end delays and hence, the average end-to-end delays of such LANs. The widely held notion in the literature is that, the ability to perform this computation is contingent on the formulation of an origin-destination traffic matrix of the network with respect to the hosts that are attached to it. The authors have shown in a previous paper that this notion does not seem to be correct. In this paper, they explain a methodology for enumerating all the end-to-end delays of any switched LAN and hence, of determining the average (or average of maximum) end-to-end delay of any LAN.
