This book is comprised of a collection of reviews and research works from international professionals from various parts of the world. A practical approach to quality management provides the reader with the understanding of basic to total quality practices in organizations, reflecting a systematic coverage of topics. Its main focus is on quality management practices in organization and dealing with specific total quality practices to quality management systems.
When station has frame, it sends
Station listens (for max round trip time)plus small increment
If ACK, fine. If not, retransmit
If no ACK after repeated transmissions, give up
Frame check sequence (as in HDLC)
If frame OK and address matches receiver, send ACK
Frame may be damaged by noise or by another station transmitting at the same time (collision)
Any overlap of frames causes collision
Max utilization 18%
