Simultaneous data packets to Xbee coordinator

What happens when several routers send packets simultaneously to coordinator? Coordinator and routers are in API Mode.

there is a collision prevent algorithm so the second router to send will see a packet is transmitting so he will wait a random time (but not so long) before retrying

@Thanatheos Meaning if the router Xbee detects there may be a collision it would hold back the data in it’s buffer right? Or do I have to resend the data to Router Xbee? And what if the time defined by maximum hops gets elapsed?
