The Bandwidth Delay Product (BDP) Calculator helps determine the amount of data (in bits) that can be in transit in a network at any given time, considering both the bandwidth and round-trip delay.

This is crucial in network performance, particularly in high-speed networks where maximizing throughput is essential.

Bandwidth Delay Product Calculator
**How to Use the Calculator:**

**Enter Two Values**:
**Bandwidth (bits/s)**: Input the network bandwidth in bits per second.
**Round-Trip Delay (seconds)**: Enter the network delay time for a round-trip.
**BDP (bits)**: Alternatively, input the BDP directly if bandwidth and delay are known, to find one of the other values.

**Calculate**: Enter any two values, leaving one field empty. Click **Calculate** to get the missing value.
**Reset**: Click **Reset** to clear all fields for a new calculation.

### How To calculate

**Example 1**

**Objective**: Calculate BDP when **Bandwidth = 1000 bits/s** and **Delay = 0.05 seconds**

Step |
Calculation |

**Bandwidth** |
1000 bits/s |

**Delay** |
0.05 seconds |

**BDP (bits)** |
Bandwidth × Delay |

**Result** |
$1000 \times 0.05 = 50$ bits |

**Answer**: The BDP is 50 bits.

**Example 2**

**Objective**: Find **Delay** when **Bandwidth = 2000 bits/s** and **BDP = 100 bits**

Step |
Calculation |

**Bandwidth** |
2000 bits/s |

**BDP (bits)** |
100 bits |

**Delay** |
$\text{BDP} \div \text{Bandwidth}$ |

**Result** |
$100 \div 2000 = 0.05$ seconds |

**Answer**: The round-trip delay is 0.05 seconds.

This tool allows quick assessment of network capacity, ideal for optimizing data flow in high-bandwidth networks and applications that rely on fast data transmission.
