5.2 10BASE-T Components
This can result in "late collisions," which are collisions that occur too late in the transmission of an Ethernet frame. A normal collision results in the immediate retransmission of a frame by the Ethernet interface. However, a late collision results in a lost frame that must be detected and retransmitted by the application software. Retransmission by the application is a lot slower and can lead to a severe loss of application performance over the network. This problem can be avoided by using only twisted-pair patch cables rated for use in twisted-pair Ethernet systems.
