Delay, Computer Networking

It is a basic quantitative property of networks. Delay is a calculate how long it takes for a bit of data to cross across the network from one end to the other. It is calculated in seconds or fractions of seconds.

TYPES OF DELAY:

There are following kinds of delay:

PROPAGATION DELAY:

It described as the time to travel across medium.

SWITCHING DELAY:

It is the time needed for network element to forward data.

ACCESS DELAY:

It is the time needed to get control of phase.

QUEUING DELAY:

It is the time required in packet switches.
