Hello EE, I have users with a handheld RF bar code scanner that goes 4300 miles across the globe.
When the user scans it takes 2-3 seconds to get back from the server so they can move on to the next scan.
How can I confirm this is normal latency due to distance?  It is a small amount of data in the barcode scan being sent, but given
the miles, I'd expect a second or two to be normal, but I need to present on the topic.
