I found definition say that, the rate of packet is define by

R=N/BD [b/Hz/s]

where N is the number of bits , B is the bandwidth and D is the packet duration. So suppose that R'=N/BD.

If I would like that my data rate of packet is equal to R''=2R', which variable can I change to get R''? is it N,B or D.

  • Please clarify your question, by cleary indicating when you mean data rate and when packet rate. The terms seems to be a bit mingled in your question. Sep 26, 2018 at 15:28

If you want to double the packet rate you could change any of the things it depends on

  • Halve the packet size, or
  • Double the bit rate, or
  • Halve the packet time

Or change two things appropriately, or all three.

  • Hi, is not logical to change any parameter without affect the other. If we double the number of bit to 2N but D allow as to sends only N. Similar Half the time we can not send more then N/2?
