A local-area network (LAN) architecture developed by Xerox
Corporation in cooperation with DEC and Intel in 1976.
Ethernet uses a bus or star topology and supports data
transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification
served as the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which
specifies the physical and lower software layers. Ethernet
uses the CSMA/CD access method to handle simultaneous
demands. It is one of the most widely implemented LAN
A newer version of Ethernet, called 100Base-T (or Fast
Ethernet), supports data transfer rates of 100 Mbps. And
the newest version, Gigabit Ethernet supports data rates of
1 gigabit (1,000 megabits) per second.

Reference section of Webopedia.
