Ethernet is part of the computer networking ecosystem and is one of the most used technologies in local area networks (LAN) and metropolitan area networks (MAN).
The technology has proven efficient and is replacing older solutions like token ring, FDDI and ARCNET.
Data transfer speeds have grown exponentially from the original 2.94 megabits per second to 100 gigabits per second. Developers expect 400 gigabits per second to be achieved by 2017.
