1000 Gigabit

A reference to Gigabit Ethernet that can be misleading. For example, in an advertisement for a 10/100/1000 Gigabit switch, the Gigabit refers to the third speed rating, which is 1,000 megabits per second (Mbps). However, the "1000" and "Gigabit" words next to each other do not mean 1,000 gigabits. See Gigabit Ethernet, 10/100/1000 adapter and 10/100/1000 switch.
