data. In this way computers sense when a collision might occur and may avoid
transmission collisions. Broadcasting this intent however increases network traffic
and so slows down network performance. For this reason CSMA/CA is not as popular
as CSMA/CD. Apple Macintosh computers use CSMA/CA when connecting together
stations monitor the network and if no activity is sensed, begin to transmit. They
continue to monitor, and should multiple stations have tried to access the cable at
once, they’ll sense a collision, cease transmission, wait a random time and then try
and forwards the print job to the printer.

EPROM chips usually contain UV-permeable quartz windows exposing some of the

It was developed by Digital, Xerox and Intel. It describes the type of data frame that
can be sent over a network and the methods used to manage data collisions. It is
similar, but not identical to the IEEE 802.3 specification.

device that must be changed as with an “EPROM”, Flash Memory comes in a data file
format. The file contains the content of the flash memory. The file is downloaded by a
computer to the device, in our case the AR5132. During the download, the data file is
written into the memory of the device, the flash memory then becomes permanent.
Both the Printer Board and the network card for the AR5132 include a Flash Memory.

needed. Although there is a Gateway setting within the AR5132’s Control Panel
Menu, the network card does not support this function. Because of this, the Gateway
Address does not need to be set on the copier.
