802.3

802.3 is the IEEE specification within Project 802 for Collision Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) networks. Ethernet users can attempt to access the medium any time it’s perceived as “quiet” but they must back off and try to transmit again if they detect any collisions once transmission begins. More commonly called Ethernet.
