TEXAS UNIV AT AUSTIN DEPT OF ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING
Pagination or Media Count:
An analysis of some performance characteristics of a CSMACD computer network protocol is presented. The analysis is based on the Enet II protocol which is designed to effectively resolve collisions in the network. In this paper we derive an expression for the average time to resolve a collision involving a given number of stations. We also give an expression for the average time until a pocket involved in a collision is successfully transmitted.
