5Multiplexing Sharing makes things efficient (cost less) One airplane/train for 100 peopleOne telephone for many callsOne lecture theatre for many classesOne computer for many tasksOne network for many users
6Multiplexing Disadvantages of Multiplexing? Might have to wait Might not know how long you have to waitMight never get servedMultiplexing is the action of sharing of resourcesin contrastConcurrency is all about how resources are shared
7Abstraction A mechanism for breaking down a problem what not how eg Specification versus implementationeg Modules in programsAllows replacement of implementations without affecting system behaviorVertical versus Horizontal“Vertical” what happens in a box “How does it attach to the network?”“Horizontal” the communications paths running through the systemHint: paths are build on top of (“layered over”) other paths
8LayeringA restricted form of abstraction: system functions are divided into layers, one built upon anotherOften called a stack; but not a data structure!
9Layers and Communications Interaction only between adjacent layerslayer n uses services provided by layer n-1layer n provides service to layer n+1Bottom layer is physical mediaTop layer is application
10Entities and Peers Entity – a thing (an independent existence) Entities interact with the layers above and belowEntities communicate with peer entitiessame level but different place (eg different person, different box, different host)Communications between peers is supported by entities at the lower layers
11Entities and Peers Entities usually do something useful Encryption – Error correction – Reliable DeliveryNothing at all is also reasonableNot all communications is end-to-endExamples for things in the middleIP Router – Mobile Phone Cell TowerPerson translating French to English
12Channels (This channel definition is very abstract) Peer entities communicate over channelsPeer entities provide higher-layer peers with higher-layer channelsA channel is that into which an entity puts symbols and which causes those symbols (or a reasonable approximation) to appear somewhere else at a later point in time.
13Channel Characteristics Symbol type: bits, packets, waveform Capacity: bandwidth, data-rate, packet-rate Delay: fixed or variable Fidelity: signal-to-noise, bit error rate, packet error rate Cost: per attachment, for use Reliability Security: privacy, unforgability Order preserving: always, almost, usually Connectivity: point-to-point, to-many, many-to-manyExamples:A telephone call (handset to handset)Fibre CableThe audio channel in a room1 Gb/s channel in a networkConversation between two peopleSequence of packets transmitted between hosts
14Layering and Embedding In Computer Networks we often see higher-layer information embedded within lower-layer informationSuch embedding can be considered a form of layeringHigher layer information is generated by stripping off headers and trailers of the current layereg an IP entity only looks at the IP headersBUT embedding is not the only form of layeringLayering is to help understand a communications systemNOTdetermine implementation strategy
15Internet protocol stack application: supporting network applicationsFTP, SMTP, HTTPtransport: process-process data transferTCP, UDPnetwork: routing of datagrams from source to destinationIP, routing protocolslink: data transfer between neighboring network elementsEthernetphysical: bits “on the wire”applicationtransportnetworklinkphysical

23What is a protocol? human protocols: “what’s the time?” “I have a question”introductions… specific msgs sent… specific actions taken when msgs received, or other eventsnetwork protocols:machines rather than humansall communication activity in Internet governed by protocolsprotocols define format, order of msgs sent and received among network entities, and actions taken on msg transmission, receipt
24What is a protocol? a human protocol and a computer network protocol: HiTCP connectionrequestHiLecture (Question by hands)Traffic lights/drivingTCP connectionresponseGot thetime?GET2:00<file>timeQ: Other human protocols?
25A closer look at network structure: network edge: applications and hostsaccess networks, physical media: wired, wireless communication linksnetwork core:interconnected routersnetwork of networks
26The network edge: end systems (hosts): client/server model run application programse.g. Web,at “edge of network”peer-peerclient/serverclient/server modelclient host requests, receives service from always-on servere.g. Web browser/server; client/serverpeer-peer model:minimal (or no) use of dedicated serverse.g. Skype, BitTorrent

35The Network Coremesh of interconnected routersthe fundamental question: how is data transferred through each channel?circuit switching: dedicated circuit per call: telephone netpacket-switching: data sent thru net in discrete “chunks”: postal servicePacket-switching = Asynchronous Time Division MultiplexingCORE = everything that is not EDGEINTERNET CORE = every router!Network CORE = everything that interconnects every edge host/server/device
36Network Core: Circuit Switching End-end resources reserved for “call”link bandwidth, switch capacitydedicated resources: no sharingcircuit-like (guaranteed) performancecall setup requirednetwork resources (e.g., bandwidth)are divided into “pieces”pieces allocated to callsresource piece idle if not usedby owning call (no sharing)How?frequency division multiplexingtime division multiplexingEnd-to-End assumes a channel END-TO-END

51Four sources of packet delay Per-packet processing:Transmission delay:errors check & lookup output linkpacket length / link bandwidthdepends on per-packet overheadPropagation:Queuing delay:length of physical link /time waiting for output linkpropagation speed in medium(depends on link-congestion)(e.g. 2x108 m/sec)ABPropagationTransmission delayPer-packetprocessingQueuing
522. Queuing delay R=link bandwidth (bps) L=packet length (bits) a=average packet arrival ratetraffic intensity = La/RLa/R ~ 0: average queuing delay smallLa/R -> 1: delays become largeLa/R > 1: more “work” arriving than can be serviced, average delay infinite!
53Smooth Arrivals = No Queuing Delays Does not happen ifpackets are evenly spacedAnd arrival rate is less than service rateSmooth Arrivals = No Queuing DelaysLa/R ~ 0: average queuing delay small
54There is significant queuing delay even though link is underutilized Queuing delay caused by “packet interference”Burstiness of arrival scheduleVariations in packet lengthsThere is significant queuing delay even though link is underutilized
55Queuing Delay Does not happen if packets are evenly spaced And arrival rate is less than service rateQueuing delay caused by “packet interference”Burstiness of arrival scheduleVariations in packet lengthsMade worse at high loadLess “idle time” to absorb burstsThink about traffic jams in rush hour….
56Jitter Difference between minimum and maximal delay Latency plays no role in jitterNor does transmission delay for same sized packetsJitter typically just differences in queuing delayWhy might an application care about jitter?
57Packet Loss Packet Loss due to a full queue Statistical Multiplexing at High Load may lead to packet lossPacket Loss due to corruptionRecall the delay due to per-packet processing;This processing detect/discards corruption

61(Propagation) Delay × Bandwidth also called Bandwidth Delay Product The University of Adelaide, School of Computer Science6 April 2017(Propagation) Delay × Bandwidth also called Bandwidth Delay ProductConsider the channel between entities as a pipeProperties:Propagation delay due to length of the pipe, andBandwidth aka the width of the pipeDelay of 50 ms and bandwidth of 45 Mbps50 x 10-3 seconds x 45 x 106 bits/second2.25 x 106 bits = 280 KB dataYou may wish to consider what PRESSSURE is – if you’re an engineering geek.Links ARE storageBits have length….Chapter 2 — Instructions: Language of the Computer
