1. The IEEE 802.3 standard for contention networks. Ethernet uses a bus or star topology and relies on the form of access known as Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) to regulate communication line traffic. Network nodes are linked by coaxial cable, by fiberoptic cable, or by twisted-pair wiring. Data is transmitted in variable-length frames containing delivery and control information and up to 1500 bytes of data. The Ethernet standard provides for baseband transmission at 10 megabits (10 million bits) per second and is available in various forms, including those known as Thin Ethernet, Thick Ethernet, 10Base2, 10Base5, 10Base-F, and 10Base-T. The IEEE standard dubbed 802.3z, or Gigabit Ethernet, operates at 10 times 100 Mbps speed. See also ALOHAnet, baseband, bus network, coaxial cable, contention, CSMA/CD, Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE 802 standards, twisted-pair cable.
2. A widely used local area network system developed by Xerox in 1976, from which the IEEE 802.3 standard was developed.
A type of networking technology for local area networks; originally developed by Xerox Corporation; coaxial cable carries radio frequency signals between computers at a rate of 10 megabits per second.
Xerox standard networking protocol used in local area networks, often connecting dissimilar devices.
In computing, a protocol for local area networks. Ethernet was developed principally by the Xerox Corporation, but can now be used on many computers. It allows data transfer at rates up to 10 Mbps.
Standard za lokalne mree koji za komunikaciju kroz koaksijalnji kabl koristi signale čija učestanost se kreće u opsegu radiofrekvencija. Razvio ga je Kseroks. Pogledajte i LAN.
