Aloha




<networking> (From the Hawaiian greeting) A system of contention resolution devised at The University of Hawaii. Packets are broadcast when ready, the sender listens to see if they collide and if so re-transmits after a random time.

Slotted Aloha constrains packets to start at the beginning of a time slot.

Basic Aloha is appropriate to long propagation time nets (e.g. satellite).

For shorter propagation times, carrier sense {protocols} are possible.
