IEEE 802

(networking, standard)
The IEEE standards for local area networks. The spanning tree algorithm is defined in IEEE 802.1 (under consideration), Logical Link Control (LLC, the upper portion of the data link layer) in IEEE 802.2, Ethernet in IEEE 802.3, Token Bus in IEEE 802.4 and IBM Token Ring in IEEE 802.5.

The equivalent ISO standard is IS 8802.

IEEE 802

IEEE standards for wired local area networks (LANs) and metropolitan area networks (MANs). The IEEE specification for LANs breaks the data link layer into two sublayers: the LLC (Logical Link Control) and MAC (Media Access Control). The LLC provides a common interface to the MAC layers, which specify the access method used. Standards for wireless networks are covered under IEEE 802.11 (see 802.11). See Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
