The Ethernet communications network is a broadcast, multiaccess system for local computer networking, using the techniques of carrier sense and collision detection. [...] Key Result Under extremely heavy load—artificially generated—the system shows stable behavior, and channel utilization approaches 98 percent, as predicted.Expand
Performance characteristics of two Ethernets: an experimental study
TLDR
An experimental performance evaluation of a 3 and a 10 Mb/s Ethernet network, where the correlation is found to range from good to poor, with more sophisticated models yielding better results than a simple one. Expand
Performance characteristics of two Ethernets: an experimental study
