Ethernet is a computer networking device for local area networks. It has replaced most competing wired LAN technologies. Systems using Ethernet divide data into frames. Each frame contains addresses of connected devices and error-checking data so that damaged frames can be re-transmitted. The original Ethernet used coaxial cables that were later replaced by fiber optic links. Data transfer rates were increased from 10 megabits per second to 100 gigabits per second. Ethernet has retained a good degree of compatibility and has influenced certain networking protocols.
