Not specifically about that page.
But the question is asking about two approaches to fragmentation, one which fragments and re-
assembles at the ends, and the other which fragments and re-assembles at each node it passes
through. You may like to include discussion about the two schemes summarised on that p7, by
- would each approach to fragmentation be even possible with each network layer routing scheme?
- would there need to be any constraints on the routing scheme to support either form of
- would either routing scheme be more efficient (in space and time) than the other, for each
particular type of fragmentation?
Hope that helps,
