Medium Access Schemes

  • Reinhard GotzheinEmail author
Part of the Computer Communications and Networks book series (CCN)


The ultimate task of a communication system is the exchange of payload messages among a set of nodes via a physical medium. If the medium is shared among these nodes, methods controlling medium occupancy called medium access schemes are applied.
