<networking> (From the Hawaiian greeting) A system of contention
resolution devised at The University of Hawaii. Packets are broadcast when
ready, the sender listens to see if they collide and if so re-transmits after a
random time. Slotted Aloha constrains packets to start at the beginning of a
time slot. Basic Aloha is appropriate to long propagation time nets (e.g.
satellite). For shorter propagation times, carrier sense protocols are possible.
