Summary

In this chapter, we examined the basic characteristics of Ethernet, which is the underlying network system used to support most TCP/IP systems. Ethernet is very flexible, supporting multiple speeds, bandwidths, and transmission media, and is mostly reliable. Ethernet can detect and remedy problems occurring because of multiple simultaneous transmissions on the same channel.
