contention slot
Jump to user comments
(Or contention period). Minimum time a host must transmit
for before it can be sure that no other host's packet has
collided with its transmission. If the maximum propagation
delay from one host to any other is T, then a host that starts
to transmit at time t0 may collide with a host that starts
just before t0 + T. The first host will not detect the
collision until time t0 + 2T.
