Abstract

This publication covers duplex negotiation whereby the number of collision on the network per second is examined and the connection is negotiated properly to prevent performance degradation of the network link. If the link level protocol was determined through auto-negotiate, and selected half duplex, the connection would be upgraded to full duplex if a threshold number of collisions per second is seen on the network.
