Q05: What is Ethernet?

A popular local area data communications network, originally developed by Xerox Corp. that accepts transmission from computers and terminals. Ethernet operates on a 10/100Mbps base transmission rate, using a shielded coaxial cable or over shielded twisted pair telephone wire.




Q04: What is Ethernet CSMA/CD?

CSMA/CD is Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection, which is a LAN access method used in Ethernet. When a device wants to gain access to the network, it checks to see if the network is quiet (senses the carrier). If it is not, it waits a random amount of time before retrying. If the network is quiet and two devices access the line at exactly the same time, their signals collide. When the collision is detected, they both back off and wait a random amount of time before retrying.


Q03: What is IEEE

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, which is the largest technical professional society that promotes the development and application of electro technology and allied sciences for the benefit of humanity, the advancement of the profession. The IEEE fosters the development of standards that often become national and international standards.


Q02: What is a Node?

A network junction or connection point, typically a computer or workstation.


Q01: What is Packet?

A unit of data routed between an origin and a destination in a network.
