Université Catholique de Louvain: Olivier Bonaventure's "Computer Networking: Principles, Protocols, and Practice"

Read section 6.4, "Summary," on page 246. In chapter 6, you explored how Local Area Networks pose a problem for transporting frames since several devices share the same transmission channel. A variety of Medium Access Control algorithms have been necessary to regulate the access to the transmission channel by reducing collisions: ALOHA, CSMA, CSMA/CD, and CSMA/CA. Review the key technologies discussed in this section.
