Since the invention of the Ethernet, the throughput problem and architectural issues have been important factors for the LAN. Data throughput in Ethernet LANs has become a particularly crucial problem as faster processors make it possible to build workstations and file servers that require faster network access. The problem was as follows. As the speed of processors continued to increase, 10 Mbps Ethernet LANs could not keep up with the increasing demand for greater network capacity. Furthermore, users were added to already overloaded LANs. Hence, every node in the LANs started scavenging for bandwidth.
