On which type of device is every port in the same collision domain?
- A. a router
- B. a Layer 2 switch
- C. a hub
Answer: Option C.
Collision domain A collision domain is, as the name implies, a part of a network where packet collisions can occur. A collision occurs when two devices send a packet at the same time on the shared network segment. The packets collide and both devices must send the packets again, which reduces network efficiency.
Collisions are often in a hub environment, because each port on a hub is in the same collision domain. By contrast, each port on a bridge, a switch or a router is in a separate collision domain.
