Definitions for **"Gbps"**

(Gigabits Per Second) speed at which data transfer is measured.

See Gigabits per second.

A measure of bandwidth on a digital data transmission medium such as optical fiber.

An acronym meaning gigabits per second, and a measure of the capacity of a device.

A measure of data transmission speed (see Gb).

The five Gigabit per second testbeds have completed their systems: AURORA, BLANCA, CASA, NECTAR, VISTANet. The sixth is MAGIC.

Gbps stands for thousands of bits or kilobits per second is a measure of bandwidth (the total information flow over a given time) on a telecommunications medium. Depending on the medium and the transmission method, bandwidth is sometimes measured in the Mbps (millions of bits per second or megabits per second) range or the Kbps (thousands of bits or kilobits per second).

One billion bits per second. Measure of bandwidth and performance.

1,000,000,000 bits per second, a measure of speed of the transmission rate for data across wired or wireless networks.

Millions of bits per second, or gigabits per second; a measure of bandwidth.

Gigabits per second: a transfer rate of approximately one billion bits of data per second.

This is a rate of data transfer of 1 gigabit of data per second.

(Gigabits per second) This is a measure of throughput in Gigabits per second.

when written with a lowercase b, short for gigabits per second.

Gigabits per second Billions of bit s per second.

Stands for gigabyte s per second.

Stands for GigaBits Per Second. A gigabit is 1,073,741,824 bits. 1gbps is about 1,900 times faster than the average narrow band modem (56k) and about 1,000 times faster than entry level ADSL broadband (1mbps).

Gigabits per second. A term attached to a specific number, indicating the amount of data (in gigabits) that can be transmitted through a given medium in one second.

A data transfer rate of Giga (thousand million) bits per second. (Also Gb/s)

Giga bits per second. 1,000,000,000 (one billion) bits per second, a measure of telecommunications speed. A thousand Megabits.

Gigabits per second, a measure of speed of transmission of data To top

(unit, communications) Gigabits per second Transmission speed or rate of one billion bits per second. See Kbps, Gbps.

Gigabit s per second.

A data rate. Gigabits per second.A gigabit is one billion bits.

Gigabits per second. The amount of data that can be sent in a fixed amount of time. 1 gigabit = 2 30 bits, 1,073,741,824 bits.

Billions of bits per second.

(Gigabits per second) A measure of bandwidth capacity or transmission speed. It represents a billion bits per second.

Gigabits per second Speed of transmission of billion bps.

Gigabits per second, a measure of broadband speed or bandwidth that translates to one billion bits per second --1,000 times faster (or more data per second) that 1 mbps. The latter speed was once considered lightening fast but has been outpaced by BPL, cable modems and DSL.

Billion bits per second or gigabits per second.

Gigabits per second. Measurement equal to 1,000,000,000 (one billion) bits per second, a measure of telecommunications speed. One Gigabit is equivalent to one thousand megabits.

(Gigabyte) One billion bytes.

Giga-bits per second (1000 million bits per second). A measure of the speed at which data travels.

A data rate of 1 Gbps corresponds to 1,000 million bits per second.

A measure of bandwidth (the amount of data that can flow in a given time). Gbps is defined as the number of bits per second ( in billions of bytes ) that can be transmitted over the specified data transmission medium. See also "giga" and gigabyte below.

Unit that measures the rate of transmission of digital signals (billion bits per second).

gigabytes per second.

GigaBits Per Second, refers to how bits of information traveling at 1 billion bits per second. Gbps is usually associated with Gigabit Ethernet.
