Definitions for "IEEE 802.3"
The physical layer standard specifying a LAN with a CSMA/CD access method on a bus topology (e.g. Ethernet).
The standard for Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection is one of the most used LAN protocols.
A Local Area Network protocol suite commonly known as Ethernet. Ethernet has either a 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps throughput and uses Carrier Sense Multiple Access bus with Collision Detection CSMA/CD. This method allows users to share the network cable. However, only one station can use the cable at a time. A variety of physical medium dependent protocols are supported.
