Gigabit Ethernet, or GbE, (and also denoted as 1 GigE) is a term describing various technologies for transmitting Ethernet frames at a rate of at least one gigabit per second, as defined by the IEEE 802.3-2008 standard. Half-duplex gigabit links connected through hubs are allowed by the specification but in the marketplace full-duplex with switches are normal. Gigabit Ethernet services operate over fiber optic media, currently at speeds up to 100 Gigabits per second.
