Figure 12.2 Taxonomy of multiple-access protocols


In random access or contention methods, no station is superior to another station and none is assigned the control over another. No station permits, or does not permit, another station to send. At each instance, a station that has data to send uses a procedure defined by the protocol to make a decision on whether or not to send.

3 ALOHA network The earliest random-access method .It tries sending the frame again after a random amount of time .If it does not receive the Ack within 2times maximum propagation delay .Figure 13.developed in 1970s Designed to be used on wireless Local area Network at 9600bps Based on Following rules •Multiple Access •Any station can send a frame when it has to send a frame •Acknowledgment •After sending a frame the station waits for an acknowledgment .

defer transmission Human analogy: don’t interrupt others! collisions can still occur:   CSMA collisions  propagation delay means two nodes may not hear each other’s transmission entire packet transmission time wasted  collision:  .CSMA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access) •Sense before transmit •The possibility of collision still exist because of the propagation delay CSMA: listen before transmit:    If channel sensed idle: transmit entire frame If channel sensed busy.

If the line is Idle station sends the frame immediately(with a probability of 1) .10 Behavior of three persistence methods It defines the procedure for a station that senses a busy medium This method has two variations I-PERSISTANT Station senses the line .If the line is Idle station sends the frame immediately •If the line is not Idle station waits for a random period of time and then senses the line again .and refrain from sending with a probability 1-p Station runs a Random number between 1-100 No Persistent •Station senses the line .this method increases the chance of collision p-PERSISTANT If the line is Idle station sends the frame with probability p .Figure 12.

. if the station finds the channel busy. it does not restart the timer of the contention window. In CSMA/CA.Figure 12. it stops the timer and restarts it when the channel becomes idle.16 Timing in CSMA/CA In CSMA/CA. the IFS can also be used to define the priority of a station or a frame.

Topics discussed in this section: Reservation Polling Token Passing Figure 12. A station cannot send unless it has been authorized by other stations. the stations consult one another to find which station has the right to send.18 Reservation access method .12-2 CONTROLLED ACCESS In controlled access.

Figure 12. concerns: •token overhead •single point of failure (token) .19 Select and poll functions in polling access method Polling: master node “invites” slave nodes to transmit in turn concerns: Token passing: •polling overhead control token passed from one node to •single point of failure (master) next sequentially.
