As data travels on the media in a stream of 1s and 0s how does a receiving node identify the beginning and end of a frame?
- The transmitting node inserts start and stop bits into the frame.
- The transmitting node sends a beacon to notify that a data frame is attached.
- The receiving node identifies the beginning of a frame by seeing a physical address.
- The transmitting node sends an out-of-band signal to the receiver about the beginning of the frame.
When data travels on the media, it is converted into a stream of 1s and 0s. The framing process inserts into the frame start and stop indicator flags so that the destination can detect the beginning and end of the frame.
