Hi Folks,

Does anyone know in the current real world what a typical packet loss
rate is in an enterprise network and on an ISP trunk?  Also if drop
occurs, consecutive packets might be discarded.  What is the typical
size that gets dropped if RED is not enabled?  Are there any such
statistics available?  Could anyone get me some pointers that can help
find those information?
