802.3 is a standard specification for Ethernet, a method of packet-based physical communication in a local area network (LAN), which is maintained by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
In general, 802.3 specifies the physical media and the working characteristics of Ethernet.
What is Ethernet and why it is used?
Ethernet is a way of connecting computers together in a local area network or LAN. It has been the most widely used method of linking computers together in LANs since the 1990s. The basic idea of its design is that multiple computers have access to it and can send data at any time.
What is the purpose of the IEEE 802 committee?
The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee develops and maintains networking standards and recommended practices for local, metropolitan, and other area networks, using an open and accredited process, and advocates them on a global basis.
What are the types of Ethernet?
Types of Ethernet Networks
- Fast Ethernet. Twisted pair cable.
- Gigabit Ethernet. Optic fiber cable.
- Switch Ethernet. Multiple network devices in a LAN require network equipments such as a network switch or hub.
Which 802 standard is for Ethernet?
IEEE 802 Wireless Standards: Fast Reference
|802.6||Distributed queue dual bus (DQDB)|
