What are collisions in this context?

Traditional ethernet collisions aren't possible on modern hardware,
since there's never more than one output writing to each twisted-pair.

Even though all modern NICs will happily do full-duplex operation when connected via a switch, people still use hubs rather than switches, sometimes.... :-) You can still get ethernet collisions on a hub.


In theory it is also possible to have collisions using a switch when the switches switching backplane is flooded.
