Unformatted text preview: destination address. They also use internal buffers to resolve contention. Therefore, the given scenario does not have collision at all, thus no CSMA/CD is needed. 3. Station A, B and C are interconnected through an Ethernet switch. At a certain moment, A and B start sending packets to C simultaneously. Do you think this will cause a transmission collision at station C? Do we need CSMA/CD to handle this? If not, what is the solution? No collision will be caused at C, and CSMA/CD is not needed. In this network, when the switch receives two packets going to station C simultaneously, it uses its internal memory to resolve the contention. One of the packets is forwarded to the destination while the other is stored in the memory. After the first forwarding is done, the buffered packet is taken out of the memory for delivery....
