One type of frame switching uses low-latency forwarding and then switches to a
higher-latency error checking mode when an error threshold is exceeded. What is
the name of this frame switching mode?

A. store and forward
B. fragment-free
C. adaptive cut-through
D. fast-forward

Answer: C

Explanation: Adaptive cut-through is a modified form of cut-through switching in
which the switch waits for the collision window (64 bytes) to pass before forwarding.
It means that each frame will be checked into the data field to make sure no
fragmentation has occurred.

I picked... B.. Is it really C?
