3.2 From Problem 3.1, we have
Td= (Np + N – 1)(P/B) + N × D
For maximum efficiency, we assume that Np = L/(P – H) is an integer. Also, it is
assumed that D = 0. Thus
Td = (L/(P – H) + N – 1)(P/B)
To minimize as a function of P, take the derivative:
= (1/B)(L/(P – H) + N – 1) - (P/B)L/(P – H)2
= L(P – H) + (N – 1) (P – H)2 - LP
= –LH + (N – 1)(P – H)2
(P - H)2 = LH/(N – 1)
3.3 Each telephone makes 0.5 calls/hour at 6 minutes each. Thus a telephone occupies
a circuit for 3 minutes per hour. Twenty telephones can share a circuit (although
this 100% utilization implies long queuing delays). Since 10% of the calls are long
distance, it takes 200 telephones to occupy a long distance (4 kHz) channel full time.
The interoffice trunk has 106 /(4 × 103 ) = 250 channels. With 200 telephones per
channel, an end office can support 200 × 250 = 50,000 telephones.
3.4 The argument ignores the overhead of the initial circuit setup and the circuit
3.5 Yes. A large noise burst could create an undetected error in the packet. If such an
error occurs and alters a destination address field or virtual circuit identifier field,
the packet would be misdelivered.
