communications 1. The time it takes for a packet to cross
a network connection, from sender to receiver.
2. The period of time that a frame is held by a network device
before it is forwarded.
Two of the most important parameters of a communications
channel are its latency, which should be low, and its
bandwidth, which should be high. Latency is particularly
important for a synchronous protocol where each packet
must be acknowledged before the next can be transmitted.
