In this class of CSMA protocols, each node maintains two clocks; a real time clock and a virtual time clock. Whenever a node finds the channel to be idle, it resets its virtual clock. We study a virtual time CSMA protocol for hard real time communication systems where messages have explicit deadlines. In this protocol, each node maintains two clocks: a real time clock and a virtual time clock. When-ever a node finds the channel to be idle, it resets its virtual . SIFS = 10µs, Short slot time (g-only) =9µs, Long slot time = 20µs, DIFS = 2 Slot time + SIFS Every data frame has a preamble of 20µs and a signal extension of 6µs at the end of each packet. ACK packet is 14 bytes Data rate is Msymbols/s, where each symbol is bits, i.e. 54Mbit/s, each symbol takes 4µs.   Protocol modifications • Virtual time CSMA VTCSMA is designed to avoid collision generated by nodes transmitting signals simultaneously, used mostly in hard real-time systems. The VTCSMA uses two clocks at every node, a virtual clock (vc) and a real clock (rc) which tells "real time".

  Wait for random amount of time and repeat (1) if medium is busy (b) 1-Persistant CSMA: Continuously sense the channel and when it sense that the channel is free, it transmit the data. CSMA-CA Carrier Sense Multiple Access Collision Avoidance The NAV (Network Allocation Vector) is used for virtual carrier sensing. It is used at MAC layer and widely used in IEEE (WLAN) and (WiMAX) standards. It is a number which used as duration field. NAV specifies transmission time required for frame to be transmitted by. virtual clock is used to time interface paths. Figure 1 shows a scenario where it helps to define a virtual clock. Reg-A is flop inside block that is sending data through PORT outside the block. Since, it is a synchronous signal, we can assume it to be captured by a flop (Reg-B) sitting outside the block. Now, within the block, the path to PORT can be timed by specifying output delay for this.

Fouad A. Tobagi, Mario Gerla, in Reference Data for Engineers (Ninth Edition), Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) In the CSMA technique, an attempt is made to avoid collisions by listening to the carrier due to transmission from another user before transmitting, and inhibiting transmission if the channel is sensed busy. Carrier-sense multiple access (CSMA) is a media access control (MAC) protocol in which a node verifies the absence of other traffic before transmitting on a shared transmission medium, such as an electrical bus or a band of the electromagnetic spectrum.. A transmitter attempts to determine whether another transmission is in progress before initiating a transmission using a carrier-sense mechanism.   VTCSMA: Virtual time CSMA Designed to avoid collision generated by nodes transmitting signals simultaneously. It used mostly in hard real-time systems (such as mission-critical applications) It uses two clocks at every node, a virtual clock VC and a real clock RC which tells "real time". When the transmission medium is sensed to be busy, the. Virtual TimeClock is a one-time software purchase that quickly and easily installs on your Windows PC, Windows tablet, or macOS computers. Put it on an older computer in a break room, employee entrance, or on each employee’s computer for a convenient, easy-to-use time clock for punching in and out.
