A student is attempting to access an 802.11n wireless network. What method is used to manage contention-based access on this wireless network?
- priority ordering
- token passing
Explanation: Carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) is used with wireless networking technology to mediate media contention. Carrier sense multiple access with collision detection (CSMA/CD) is used with wired Ethernet technology to mediate media contention. Priority ordering and token passing are not used (or not a method) for media access control.
