TCP has a 32-bit sequence number field and 16-bit advertised window field. Assume that RTT is 64 (26) ms, transmission speed is 10 Mbps (10×220bps) and each segment transmitted is 1B byte. Note that since not two identical sequence numbers can be unacknowledged in the pipe, half of the sequence numbers can be used (231).
