These is a term that have have been using for several years in a classroom environment when referencing a number of WLAN topics such as CSMA/CA, co-channel interference, etc.
I shared it with Joel and some others a couple of weeks ago on Twitter and I thought I would post it here as well:
Contention domain: a physical area where multiple STAs compete for access on the half-duplex medium of a single frequency.
I've been pushing the 'Collision Domain' concept in my classes for years now. So many folks don't understand the 'hub'ness of Access Points.
I started using 'Contention Domain' this week instead. Perhaps more folks with 'Get It' this way.
I'm pushing to get it into the WiFi Lexicon!
Thanks Mr. Multipath
