The most popular communication system for Local Area Networks (LANs). Each machine on the network has an Ethernet card connected to the computer's bus, and to either 10base-T (twisted pair) or coaxial cable. The computer lab's network is Ethernet. Another, less popular networking standard is Token Ring. Ethernet supports "packet switching." Each Ethernet NIC has a unique address that is attached to the packets it sends and receives.
