IEEE - Standards.
Ethernet Logical Link Control (LLC) and Media Access Control (MAC) sublayers.
Historic Ethernet: The foundation for Ethernet technology in 1970 was Alohanet.
Early Ethernet Media used coaxial cable to connect computers in a bus topology. It was known as Thicknet (10BASE5) and Thinnet (10BASE2).
Ethernet Collision Management.
There are two styles of Ethernet framing: IEEE 802.3 (original) and the revised IEEE 802.3 (Ethernet).
CSMA/CD, Carrier Sensle, Multiple Access, Collision Detection, JAM Signal and Random Backoff.
Ethernet Timing and latency.
Bit Time: The period of time required for a bit to be placed and sensed on the media.
Slot Time: is the time it takes for an electronic pulse to travel the length of the maximum theoretical distance between two nodes.
