Advantages and disadvantages of CSMA/CD

Advantages of  CSMA/CD:
  • This technique is efficient for light to moderate load.
  • It was invented for wireless networks.
  • It is inexpensive.
  • It is fast. 
  • Very simple to implement.
  • It avoids a collision.
  • It detects collision within a short time 
  • CSMA/CD is a control software that is relatively simple ad produces little overhead. 
  • It uses CTS means cleat to send.
  • It uses RTS means a request to send.
  • More efficient than a simple CSMA.
  • CSMA/CD is beneficial because it avoids a wasteful transmission.
  • It is similar to CSMA but instead of sending the packet control frame are exchanged.
  • It uses three stages to avoid a collision. IFS, contention window, acknowledgment.
  • CSMA/CD is a control software that is relatively simple ad produces little overhead.
 Disadvantages of CSMA/CD:
  • Not scalable due to broadcasting.
  • The algorithm calls for the long waiting time.
  • It has high power consumption.
  • The network may not e available when needed.
