1000 Gigabit

A reference to Gigabit Ethernet that can be misleading at least until 1 Terabit Ethernet is developed in the future. For example, in an advertisement for a "10/100/1000 Gigabit switch," the Gigabit refers to the third speed rating, which is actually "one" gigabit. The 10/100/1000 refers to 10, 100 and 1,000 megabits per second. See Terabit Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, 10/100/1000 adapter and 10/100/1000 switch.
