It is standardized as IEEE 80.! medium access method called arrier#ense $ultiple Access with ollision %etection & #$A' %(. )he originalstandard was de*ned for hub based twisted pair Local Area Network &LAN( andoperates at +0$bps o,er a ma-imum distance of +00 meters. At +0$bps thispropagation delay euals /+ bits or 1 bytes2 which was selected as theminimum frame length or minislot. In Ethernet LAN2 the terminal transmissionis broadcast o,er the hub using #$A' % for the $edium Access ontrol &$A (protocol. A station will start transmit a frame when the channel is silent andcontinue to listen that can occur if other station also begins to transmit. If collision occurs2 the station will abort the transmission and start scheduling totransmit using truncated binary e-ponential backo3 &4E4( algorithm.
