arcnef Make Offer – Loading ARCNET added a small delay on an inactive network as arncet sending station waited to receive the token, but Ethernet’s performance degraded drastically if too many peers attempted to broadcast at the same time, due to the time required for the slower processors of the day to process and recover from collisions.

An Ethernet network could collapse when too busy due to excessive collisions. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.
