Although CSMA/CD is still a feature of Ethernet, why is it no longer necessary?
- the virtually unlimited availability of IPv6 addresses
- the use of CSMA/CA
- the use of full-duplex capable Layer 2 switches
- the development of half-duplex switch operation
- the use of Gigabit Ethernet speeds
Answers Explanation & Hints:
The use of Layer 2 switches operating in full-duplex mode eliminates collisions, thereby eliminating the need for CSMA/CD.
