IEEE -1995 - Network Systems Tutorial for IEEE Std 802.3: Repeater Functions and System Design Topology Considerations for Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) Local Area Networks (LANs)
Standard Details
An indispensable resource for system installers and subsystem component developers, IEEE's Network Systems Tutorial for IEEE Std 802.3 provides essential background material required to understand the basic functioning of the CSMA/CD (Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection) packet network. With an exclusive focus on the ISO/IEC (International Organization of Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission) 8802-3 10 Mb/s CSMA/CD network, this informative tutorial addresses two vital parameters that determine the constraints on network timing-network acquisition time and maximum framelength. It explains the role of the repeater and its significance in the definition of maximum network size. Moreover, it includes a propagation budget table together with an example of all elements that delay the propagation of a transmitted signal in a CSMA/CD network.
