1 5-1 Data Link Layer r What is Data Link Layer? r Multiple access protocols r Link-layer Addressing r Ethernet

2 5-2 Link Layer Services r framing, link access: m encapsulate datagram into frame, adding header, trailer m channel access if shared medium m “MAC” addresses used in frame headers to identify source, dest different from IP address!

3 5-3 Link Layer Services (more) r flow control: m pacing between adjacent sending and receiving nodes r error detection: m errors caused by signal attenuation, noise. m receiver detects presence of errors: signals sender for retransmission or drops frame r error correction: m receiver identifies and corrects bit error(s) without resorting to retransmission r half-duplex and full-duplex m with half duplex, nodes at both ends of link can transmit, but not at same time

4 5-4 Where is the link layer implemented? r in each and every host r link layer implemented in “adaptor” (aka network interface card NIC) m Ethernet card, 802.11 card m implements link, physical layer r combination of hardware, software, firmware network adapter card

5 5-5 Multiple Access Links and Protocols Two types of “links”: r point-to-point m PPP for dial-up access m point-to-point link between Ethernet switch and host r broadcast (shared wire or medium) m old-fashioned Ethernet m upstream HFC m 802.11 wireless LAN shared wire (e.g., cabled Ethernet) shared RF (e.g., 802.11 WiFi) shared RF (satellite) humans at a cocktail party (shared air, acoustical)

6 5-6 Multiple Access protocols r single shared broadcast channel r two or more simultaneous transmissions by nodes: interference m collision if node receives two or more signals at the same time multiple access protocol r distributed algorithm that determines how nodes share channel, i.e., determine when node can transmit r communication about channel sharing must use channel itself! m no out-of-band channel for coordination

7 5-7 Ideal Multiple Access Protocol What are the multiple access protocols?

8 5-8 Channel Partitioning MAC protocols: TDMA TDMA: time division multiple access r access to channel in "rounds" r each station gets fixed length slot (length = pkt trans time) in each round r unused slots go idle r example: 6-station LAN, 1,3,4 have pkt, slots 2,5,6 idle 1 3 4 1 3 4 6-slot frame

9 5-9 Channel Partitioning MAC protocols: FDMA FDMA: frequency division multiple access r channel spectrum divided into frequency bands r each station assigned fixed frequency band r unused transmission time in frequency bands go idle r example: 6-station LAN, 1,3,4 have pkt, frequency bands 2,5,6 idle frequency bands time FDM cable

10 5-10 Ideal Multiple Access Protocol TDMA and FDMA have their own disadvantages…

11 5-11 Random Access Protocols r When node has packet to send m transmit at full channel data rate R. m no a priori coordination among nodes  two or more transmitting nodes ➜ “collision”, r random access MAC protocol specifies: m how to detect collisions m how to recover from collisions (e.g., via delayed retransmissions) r Examples of random access MAC protocols: m slotted ALOHA m ALOHA m CSMA, CSMA/CD, CSMA/CA

12 5-12 Slotted ALOHA Assumptions: r all frames same size r time divided into equal size slots (time to transmit 1 frame) r nodes start to transmit only slot beginning r nodes are synchronized r if 2 or more nodes transmit in slot, all nodes detect collision Operation: r when node obtains fresh frame, transmits in next slot m if no collision: node can send new frame in next slot m if collision: node retransmits frame in each subsequent slot with prob. p until success

13 5-13 Slotted ALOHA Pros r single active node can continuously transmit at full rate of channel r highly decentralized: only slots in nodes need to be in sync r simple Cons r collisions, wasting slots r idle slots r nodes may be able to detect collision in less than time to transmit packet r clock synchronization

14 5-14 Pure (unslotted) ALOHA r unslotted Aloha: simpler, no synchronization r when frame first arrives m transmit immediately r collision probability increases: m frame sent at t 0 collides with other frames sent in [t 0 -1,t 0 +1]

15 5-15 CSMA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access) CSMA: listen before transmit: If channel sensed idle: transmit entire frame r If channel sensed busy, defer transmission r human analogy: don’t interrupt others!

16 5-16 CSMA/CD (Collision Detection) CSMA/CD: carrier sensing, deferral as in CSMA m collisions detected within short time m colliding transmissions aborted, reducing channel wastage r collision detection: m easy in wired LANs: measure signal strengths, compare transmitted, received signals m difficult in wireless LANs: received signal strength overwhelmed by local transmission strength r human analogy: the polite conversationalist

17 5-17 “Taking Turns” MAC protocols channel partitioning MAC protocols: m share channel efficiently and fairly at high load m inefficient at low load: delay in channel access, 1/N bandwidth allocated even if only 1 active node! Random access MAC protocols m efficient at low load: single node can fully utilize channel m high load: collision overhead “taking turns” protocols look for best of both worlds!

18 5-18 “Taking Turns” MAC protocols Polling: r master node “invites” slave nodes to transmit in turn r typically used with “dumb” slave devices r concerns: m polling overhead m latency m single point of failure (master) master slaves poll data

19 5-19 “Taking Turns” MAC protocols Token passing: r control token passed from one node to next sequentially. r token message r concerns: m token overhead m latency m single point of failure (token) T data (nothing to send) T

20 5-20 Summary of MAC protocols r channel partitioning, by time, frequency or code m Time Division, Frequency Division r random access (dynamic), m ALOHA, S-ALOHA, CSMA, CSMA/CD m carrier sensing: easy in some technologies (wire), hard in others (wireless) m CSMA/CD used in Ethernet m CSMA/CA used in 802.11 r taking turns m polling from central site, token passing m Bluetooth, FDDI, IBM Token Ring

21 5-21 MAC Addresses r 32-bit IP address: m network-layer address m used to get datagram to destination IP subnet r MAC (or LAN or physical or Ethernet) address: m function: get frame from one interface to another physically-connected interface (same network) m 48 bit MAC address (for most LANs) burned in NIC ROM, also sometimes software settable

22 5-22 LAN Addresses and ARP Each adapter on LAN has unique LAN address Broadcast address = FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF = adapter 1A-2F-BB-76-09-AD 58-23-D7-FA-20-B0 0C-C4-11-6F-E3-98 71-65-F7-2B-08-53 LAN (wired or wireless)

23 5-23 LAN Address (more) r MAC address allocation administered by IEEE r manufacturer buys portion of MAC address space (to assure uniqueness) r analogy: (a) MAC address: like Social Security Number (b) IP address: like postal address  MAC flat address ➜ portability m can move LAN card from one LAN to another r IP hierarchical address NOT portable m address depends on IP subnet to which node is attached

24 5-24 Ethernet “dominant” wired LAN technology: r cheap $20 for NIC r first widely used LAN technology r simpler, cheaper than token LANs and ATM r kept up with speed race: 10 Mbps – 10 Gbps Metcalfe’s Ethernet sketch

25 5-25 Star topology r bus topology popular through mid 90s m all nodes in same collision domain (can collide with each other) r today: star topology prevails m active switch in center m each “spoke” runs a (separate) Ethernet protocol (nodes do not collide with each other) switch bus: coaxial cable star

26 5-26 Ethernet Frame Structure Sending adapter encapsulates IP datagram (or other network layer protocol packet) in Ethernet frame Preamble: r 7 bytes with pattern 10101010 followed by one byte with pattern 10101011 r used to synchronize receiver, sender clock rates

27 5-27 Ethernet Frame Structure (more) r Addresses: 6 bytes m if adapter receives frame with matching destination address, or with broadcast address (eg ARP packet), it passes data in frame to network layer protocol m otherwise, adapter discards frame r Type: indicates higher layer protocol (mostly IP but others possible, e.g., Novell IPX, AppleTalk) r CRC: checked at receiver, if error is detected, frame is dropped

28 5-28 Ethernet: Unreliable, connectionless r connectionless: No handshaking between sending and receiving NICs r unreliable: receiving NIC doesn’t send acks or nacks to sending NIC m stream of datagrams passed to network layer can have gaps (missing datagrams) m gaps will be filled if app is using TCP m otherwise, app will see gaps r Ethernet’s MAC protocol: unslotted CSMA/CD

29 5-29 Ethernet CSMA/CD algorithm 1. NIC receives datagram from network layer, creates frame 2. If NIC senses channel idle, starts frame transmission If NIC senses channel busy, waits until channel idle, then transmits 3. If NIC transmits entire frame without detecting another transmission, NIC is done with frame ! 4. If NIC detects another transmission while transmitting, aborts and sends jam signal 5. After aborting, NIC enters exponential backoff: after mth collision, NIC chooses K at random from {0,1,2,…,2 m -1}. NIC waits K·512 bit times, returns to Step 2

30 5-30 Ethernet’s CSMA/CD (more) Jam Signal: make sure all other transmitters are aware of collision; 48 bits Bit time:.1 microsec for 10 Mbps Ethernet ; for K=1023, wait time is about 50 msec Exponential Backoff: r Goal: adapt retransmission attempts to estimated current load m heavy load: random wait will be longer r first collision: choose K from {0,1}; delay is K· 512 bit transmission times r after second collision: choose K from {0,1,2,3}… r after ten collisions, choose K from {0,1,2,3,4,…,1023}

31 5-31 Hubs … physical-layer (“dumb”) repeaters: m bits coming in one link go out all other links at same rate m all nodes connected to hub can collide with one another m no frame buffering m no CSMA/CD at hub: host NICs detect collisions twisted pair hub

32 5-32 Switch r link-layer device: smarter than hubs, take active role m store, forward Ethernet frames m examine incoming frame’s MAC address, selectively forward frame to one-or-more outgoing links when frame is to be forwarded on segment, uses CSMA/CD to access segment r transparent m hosts are unaware of presence of switches r plug-and-play, self-learning m switches do not need to be configured

33 5-33 Switch: allows multiple simultaneous transmissions r hosts have dedicated, direct connection to switch r switches buffer packets r Ethernet protocol used on each incoming link, but no collisions; full duplex m each link is its own collision domain r switching: A-to-A’ and B- to-B’ simultaneously, without collisions m not possible with dumb hub A A’ B B’ C C’ switch with six interfaces (1,2,3,4,5,6) 1 2 3 4 5 6
