End-to-end delay is the total time it takes for a packet to be sent through a network. Each router has its own separate delay times so this only gives an estimation.

This equation computes an estimated end-to-end delay in seconds from the following inputs:

• n - the number of links between routers
• d_"proc" - the average processing delay incurred by a router
• d_"trans" - the average transmission delay
• d_"prop" - the average propagation delay
