Unformatted text preview: duplex transmission, which supports multiple simultaneous transmissions; therefore, there is no need of CSMA/CD. 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? It would not cause a transmission collision at station C, because a switch supports multiple transmissions. Therefore we dont need CSMA/CD to handle it. The following is the solution for this transmission: Switches have internal memory to buffer incoming packets, When two or more packets contend for the same destination output, only one packet is delivered at a time, other packets are delayed in the memory....
