Question 2

A steady state is a state where there are no changes made to the system parameters for some period of time. For a system to be in a steady state, the data consumption rate must be equal to the data production rate.

A video source is transmitting using Kanakia's scheme and has reached a steady state and in this steady state, the video source is sending 10 frames per second and each frame is compressed to 50,000 bytes. (So the source will be transmitting at this rate for some prolong period of time).

While in the steady state, a feedback is received from the receiver that was generated at the moment that frame 10 arrives at the congested router. At the moment that the sender receives this feedback information, the sender was about to transmit frame 16.
