Ethernet (/m/02lgj)

Ethernet /ˈiːθərnɛt/ is a family of computer networking technologies for local area networks and metropolitan area networks. It was commercially introduced in 1980 and first standardized in 1983 as IEEE 802.3, and has since been refined to support higher bit rates and longer link distances. Over time, Ethernet has largely replaced competing wired LAN technologies such as token ring, FDDI, and ARCNET. The primary alternative for contemporary LANs is not a wired standard, but instead a wireless LAN standardized as IEEE 802.11 and also known as Wi-Fi. The Ethernet standards comprise several wiring and signaling variants of the OSI physical layer in use with Ethernet. The original 10BASE5 Ethernet uses coaxial cable as a shared medium, while the newer Ethernet variants use twisted pair and fiber optic links in conjunction with hubs or switches. Over the course of its history, Ethernet data transfer rates have been increased from the original three megabits per second to the latest 100 gigabits per second, with 400 Gbit/s expected by early 2017. Systems communicating over Ethernet divide a stream of data into shorter pieces called frames.
