What is reliability in networking ? Why reliability is an important design tool ? I will provide the answers of these questions with the examples in this post.
Reliability is within the reasonable amount of time, which depends on the application type and architecture, delivering the legitimate packets from source to destination.
This time is known as delay or latency and it is one of the packet delivery parameters. Consistency of delay known as jitter and it is very important for some type of applications such as voice and video, jitter is our second delivery parameters.
