    Recent interest in networked control systems (NCS) has instigated research in
    both communication networks and control. Analysis of NCSs has usually been performed from either the network or the control point of view, but not many papers exist where the analysis of both is done in the same context. In this paper an overall analysis of the networked control system is presented. First, the procedure of obtaining the upper bound delay value for packet transmission in the switched Ethernet network is presented. The upper bound delay algorithm applies ideas from network calculus theory. Next, the obtained delay estimate is utilised in delay compensation for improving the Quality of Performance (QoP) of the control systems. For the improvement of the performance a robust control based delay compensation strategy is used.
