Ethernet can be defined as a group of frame-based computer networking technologies for local area networks. The name is adopted from the word ‚Äúether' that defines the number of wiring and signaling standards for the physical layer of the OSI networking model. This happens through the means of network access at the Media Access Control (MAC) /Data Link Layer. Ethernet is usually standardized as IEEE 802.3. Gigabit Ethernet describes different technologies that are utilized to transmit Ethernet frames at a rate of a gigabit per second (which is defined by the IEEE 802.3-2005). Half-duplex gigabit links are connected through hubs and are allowed by the specification but in the marketplace duplex with switches are normal. There are four various physical layer standards for gigabit Ethernet by the use of optic fiber, twisted pair cable or balanced copper cable.
