Talk:Transmission time

This article is very ambiguous. Is it discussing the Transmission_delay or the Propagation_delay, or the sum both?

"Packet Size / Data bandwidth" is the transmission delay, while "the amount of time it takes A bit to go from the start of the link to its destination" is the propagation delay. BrokenKB (talk) 20:29, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Transmission time can be obtained from the packet size and the effective network bandwidth
Transmission time = Packet Size / Data bandwidth

This is the time to transmit a packet. Completely different. Rich Farmbrough, 17:22 18 May 2009 (UTC).

The definition for propagation delay was given to transmission time. I changed that. (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 07:12, 26 February 2010 (UTC).

″Network throughput ≈ Window size / roundtrip time". This means that i can get infinite throughput if the window size is big enough? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:11, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
