Gbps - Gigabits Per SecondGigabits per second is the measurement unit that measures the data speed of the modern hardware or a network device, such as a Switch, Ethernet port, hard drive (usually SATA drive) or a digital data transmission medium such as optical fiber.1 Gbps equals 1 billion bits of data transmitted per second. It is mainly used to measure the speed of the high … [Read more...] about What is the Full Form of Gbps ?
kbps - kilobits per second KBps - Kilobytes per secondkbps is the data speed measuring unit used to measure the data rate for any networking device, DSL or a broadband line. 1 kbps equals 1000 bits/s. Other higher network data rates includes Mbps and Gbps. Kbps is usually represented by the notation - kbits/s or kbps.It's interesting to note that the internet speed is measured … [Read more...] about What is the Full Form of kbps ?
CSMA - Carrier Sense Multiple Access CSMA/CD - Carrier Sense Multiple Access / Collision Detection CSMA/CA - Carrier Sense Multiple Access / Collision AvoidanceCarrier Sense Multiple Access protocol is used in situations where multiple users require to access a single channel for data transmission at the same time. If two or more users transmit the data at the same time, it … [Read more...] about What is the Full Form of CSMA, CSMA/CD, CSMA/CA ?
VLAN - Virtual Local Area Network Virtual Local Area Network is a group of computers that are "logically" not physically connected together to form a LAN. VLAN offers such a flexibility, where computer systems could easily communicate with each other even if they does not belong to the same LAN "physically". A typical Virtual LAN may spread across a wide area despite of its … [Read more...] about What is the Full Form of VLAN ?
