Carrier-Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance

   The network-access method used by Apple's LocalTalk networks, among others. In a CSMA/CA environment, a primary workstation attempting to transmit data sends a request-to-transmit signal to a secondary workstation. When the sending workstation receives a clear-to-send signal from the receiving node, it begins to transmit data.
