Summary: 
For several years, more and more people are joining the Internet and various kind of packets (so called transaction-, block-, and stream-types) have been transmitted in the same network, so that poor network conditions cause loss of the stream-type data packets, such as voices, which request smaller transmission delay time than others. We consider a switching node (router) in a network as an N-series M/G/1-type queueing model and have mainly evaluated the fluctuation of packet delay time and end-to-end delay time, using the two moments matching method with initial value, then define the delay jitter D of a network which consists of jointed N switching nodes. It is clarified that this network is not suitable for voice packets transmission media without measures.
