    Hi JUNOS speakers,

     

    I have a weird question to post here. If I  have a peering link of 10Mbps dedicated link, why isn't the bandwidth calculated as 20Mbps since the upload is 10Mbps and download is also 10Mbps. Isn't 10+10 = 20?

     

    I would really appreciate if some saints out there could clear the air for me on this as it's been haunting me for a while.

     

    Thanks a lot.

    Fun question 🙂

     

    The original term came out of the study of electomagnetic radiation - I would guess that most data transfers were originally non-duplex in nature so it made "sense"
