Question 5: What is the total delay (latency) for a frame of size 5 million bits that is being sent on a link with 10 routers each having a queuing time of 3.5 µs and a processing time of 1.8 µs. The length of the link is 1900 km, the speed of light inside the link is 2.2 x 108 m/s, the link has a bandwidth of 8 Mbps. Which component(s) of the total delay is/are dominant? Which one(s) is/are negligible? (5 Marks)
