What is the difference between a collision doamin and a broadcast domain?

Showing Answers 1 - 1 of 1 Answers


A collision domain is a logical network segment where data packets can "collide" with one another for being sent on a shared medium, in particular in the ethernet
networking protocol.

A broadcast domain is a logical network segment in which any computer or other device connected to the network can directly transmit to any other in the domain without having to go through a routing device, provided that they share the same subnet and gateway address and are in the same VLan, default or installed.
