Abstract

The Aloha family of protocols is probably the richest family of multiple access protocols. Its popularity is due first of all to seniority, as it is the first random access technique introduced. Second, many of these protocols are so simple that their implementation is straightforward. Many local area networks of today implement some sophisticated variants of this family’s protocols.
