I have been advised in person by a trustworthy source that the "bandwidth" of a device, when expressed in kb/sec, is the number of bits that the device is capable of writing to the wire in a second. It was also stated that this is synonymous with "insertion delay".
Now, this makes sense, but since I cannot find anything on the net using this same terminology, I am unsure.
1) Is this the correct definition of "bandwidth"?
2) Is "insertion delay" the same as bandwidth? Again, there doesn't seem to be anything confirming either way.
