Recognizing Traffic Patterns

Delay in latency-sensitive traffic consists mainly of single packet transfer that must be acknowledged before communication can continue.

Bandwidth-sensitive traffic consists principally of unidirectional communications where a large amount of traffic flows in one direction and acknowledgments flow in the other.
2) Bandwidth-sensitive traffic consists principally of unidirectional communications where a large amount of traffic flows in one direction and acknowledgments flow in the other.

Consider a latency-sensitive traffic examples on a 10 megabits per second (mbps) local area network (LAN) segment where delay is essentially zero.

The transaction time in the previous example is dominated by the domain controller response times. 
The level of performance is typical in LAN based environments.
