A technique is presented for the derivation of approximate average packet time-delay formulas in a packet-switching store-and-forward network. The approximation technique appropriately incorporates arrival and departure packet interferences with the recent queueing results in a noninterfered communication path. Simulation results, for basic flow configurations, show the approximate timedelay function to constitute a very close lower bound over wide range of traffic intensities. The resulting average time-delay approximation when a Poisson assumption is made, is shown to constitute an upper bound. A procedure for approximate network time-delay analysis is then presented.
