I really do not understand that statement. Yes, transport protocols, like TCP, are the payload of network protocols, like IP, but that is how it is designed, not a problem.

Yes, it is possible that packets get queued when there is network congestion. Queuing can cause delay, but the alternative is to simply drop excess packets in congestion, and that can be worse than delay.

  • that queue is buffering ? – Manjitha teshara Jul 31 '18 at 17:24

    Technically queuing and buffering are the same thing, but network queuing is not like buffering a video on your PC. Network queues are relatively small. Network queuing is a very large subject and part of QoS that is a huge subject. – Ron Maupin Jul 31 '18 at 17:30
