Telecommunications and exchange between information technology systems -- Requirements for local and metropolitan area networks

This document defines Ethernet local area, access and metropolitan area networks. Ethernet is specified at selected speeds of operation; and uses a common media access control (MAC) specification and management information base (MIB). The Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) MAC protocol specifies shared medium (half duplex) operation, as well as full duplex operation. Speed specific Media Independent Interfaces (MIIs) provide an architectural and optional implementation interface to selected Physical Layer entities (PHY). The Physical Layer encodes frames for transmission and decodes received frames with the modulation specified for the speed of operation, transmission medium and supported link length. Other specified capabilities include: control and management protocols, and the provision of power over selected twisted pair PHY types.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are

members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical

committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity.

ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of ISO/IEC documents should be noted (see www.iso.org/directives or www.iec.ch/

members_experts/refdocs).

IEEE Standards documents are developed within the IEEE Societies and the Standards

Coordinating Committees of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board. The

IEEE develops its standards through a consensus development process, approved by the American

National Standards Institute, which brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and

interests to achieve the final product. Volunteers are not necessarily members of the Institute and

serve without compensation. While the IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to

promote fairness in the consensus development process, the IEEE does not independently evaluate,

test, or verify the accuracy of any of the information contained in its standards.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

of patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the

Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents) or

the IEC list of patent declarations received (see http://patents.iec.ch).

Abstract: Ethernet local area network operation is specified for selected speeds of operation from

1 Mb/s to 400 Gb/s using a common media access control (MAC) specification and managemen t

information base (MIB). The Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD )

MAC protocol specifies shared medium (half duplex) operation, as well as full duplex operation.

Speed specific Media Independent Interfaces (MIIs) allow use of selected Physical Layer devices

(PHY) for operation over coaxial, twisted pair or fiber optic cables, or electrical backplanes.

System considerations for multisegment shared access networks describe the use of Repeaters

that are defined for operational speeds up to 1000 Mb/s. Local Area Network (LAN) operation i s

supported at all speeds. Other specified capabilities include: various PHY types for access

networks, PHYs suitable for metropolitan area network applications, and the provision of power

over selected twisted pair PHY types.

Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents

IEEE documents are made available for use subject to important notices and legal disclaimers. These notices

and disclaimers, or a reference to this page, appear in all standards and may be found under the heading

“Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents.” They can also be obtained on

request from IEEE or viewed at http://standards.ieee.org/IPR/disclaimers.html.
Notice and Disclaimer of Liability Concerning the Use of IEEE Standards
Documents

IEEE Standards documents (standards, recommended practices, and guides), both full-use and trial-use, are

developed within IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating Committees of the IEEE Standards

Association (“IEEE-SA”) Standards Board. IEEE (“the Institute”) develops its standards through a

consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”), which

brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the final product. IEEE

Standards are documents developed through scientific, academic, and industry-based technical working

groups. Volunteers in IEEE working groups are not necessarily members of the Institute and participate

without compensation from IEEE. While IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to promote

fairness in the consensus development process, IEEE does not independently evaluate, test, or verify the

accuracy of any of the information or the soundness of any judgments contained in its standards.

IEEE Standards do not guarantee or ensure safety, security, health, or environmental protection, or ensure

against interference with or from other devices or networks. Implementers and users of IEEE Standard s

documents are responsible for determining and complying with all appropriate safety, security,

environmental, health, and interference protection practices and all applicable laws and regulations.

IEEE does not warrant or represent the accuracy or content of the material contained in its standards, and

expressly disclaims all warranties (express, implied and statutory) not included in this or any other

document relating to the standard, including, but not limited to, the warranties of: merchantability; fitness

for a particular purpose; non-infringement; and quality, accuracy, effectiveness, currency, or completeness of

material. In addition, IEEE disclaims any and all conditions relating to: results; and workmanlike effort.

IEEE standards documents are supplied “AS IS” and “WITH ALL FAULTS.”

Use of an IEEE standard is wholly voluntary. The existence of an IEEE standard does not imply that there

are no other ways to produce, test, measure, purchase, market, or provide other goods and services related t o

the scope of the IEEE standard. Furthermore, the viewpoint expressed at the time a standard is approved and

issued is subject to change brought about through developments in the state of the art and comments

received from users of the standard.

In publishing and making its standards available, IEEE is not suggesting or rendering professional or othe r

services for, or on behalf of, any person or entity nor is IEEE undertaking to perform any duty owed by any

other person or entity to another. Any person utilizing any IEEE Standards document, should rely upon his

or her own independent judgment in the exercise of reasonable care in any given circumstances or, as

appropriate, seek the advice of a competent professional in determining the appropriateness of a given IEEE

standard.
IN NO EVENT SHALL IEEE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL,
EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO :
PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; LOSS OF USE, DATA, OR PROFITS; OR
BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY,
WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR
OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE PUBLICATION, USE OF, OR RELIANCE UPON
ANY STANDARD, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE AND
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE WAS FORESEEABLE.

Translations

The IEEE consensus development process involves the review of documents in English only. In the event

that an IEEE standard is translated, only the English version published by IEEE should be considered the

approved IEEE standard.
Official statements

A statement, written or oral, that is not processed in accordance with the IEEE-SA Standards Board

Operations Manual shall not be considered or inferred to be the official position of IEEE or any of its

committees and shall not be considered to be, or be relied upon as, a formal position of IEEE. At lectures,

symposia, seminars, or educational courses, an individual presenting information on IEEE standards shall

make it clear that his or her views should be considered the personal views of that individual rather than the

formal position of IEEE.
Comments on standards

Comments for revision of IEEE Standards documents are welcome from any interested party, regardless of

membership affiliation with IEEE. However, IEEE does not provide consulting information or advice

pertaining to IEEE Standards documents. Suggestions for changes in documents should be in the form of a

proposed change of text, together with appropriate supporting comments. Since IEEE standards represent a

consensus of concerned interests, it is important that any responses to comments and questions also receive

the concurrence of a balance of interests. For this reason, IEEE and the members of its societies and

Standards Coordinating Committees are not able to provide an instant response to comments or questions

except in those cases where the matter has previously been addressed. For the same reason, IEEE does not

respond to interpretation requests. Any person who would like to participate in revisions to an IEEE

standard is welcome to join the relevant IEEE working group.
Comments on standards should be submitted to the following address:
Secretary, IEEE-SA Standards Board

Piscataway, NJ 08854 USA
Laws and regulations

Users of IEEE Standards documents should consult all applicable laws and regulations. Compliance with the

provisions of any IEEE Standards document does not imply compliance to any applicable regulatory

requirements. Implementers of the standard are responsible for observing or referring to the applicable

regulatory requirements. IEEE does not, by the publication of its standards, intend to urge action that is not

in compliance with applicable laws, and these documents may not be construed as doing so.

Copyrights

IEEE draft and approved standards are copyrighted by IEEE under U.S. and international copyright laws.

They are made available by IEEE and are adopted for a wide variety of both public and private uses. These

include both use, by reference, in laws and regulations, and use in private self-regulation, standardization,

and the promotion of engineering practices and methods. By making these documents available for use and

adoption by public authorities and private users, IEEE does not waive any rights in copyright to the

documents.

the Copyright Clearance Center.
Updating of IEEE Standards documents

Users of IEEE Standards documents should be aware that these documents may be superseded at any time

by the issuance of new editions or may be amended from time to time through the issuance of amendments,

corrigenda, or errata. A current IEEE document at any point in time consists of the current edition of the

document together with any amendments, corrigenda, or errata then in effect.

Every IEEE standard is subjected to review at least every ten years. When a document is more than ten years

old and has not undergone a revision process, it is reasonable to conclude that its contents, although still o f

some value, do not wholly reflect the present state of the art. Users are cautioned to check to determine that

they have the latest edition of any IEEE standard.

In order to determine whether a given document is the current edition and whether it has been amended

through the issuance of amendments, corrigenda, or errata, visit the IEEE-SA Website at

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/standards.jsp or contact IEEE at the address listed previously. For more

information about the IEEE-SA or IEEE’s standards development process, visit the IEEE-SA Website at

http://standards.ieee.org.
Errata

Errata, if any, for all IEEE standards can be accessed on the IEEE-SA Website at the following URL:

http://standards.ieee.org/findstds/errata/index.html. Users are encouraged to check this URL for errata

periodically.
Patents

Attention is called to the possibility that implementation of this standard may require use of subject matter

covered by patent rights. By publication of this standard, no position is taken by the IEEE with respect to the

existence or validity of any patent rights in connection therewith. If a patent holder or patent applicant has

filed a statement of assurance via an Accepted Letter of Assurance, then the statement is listed on the IEEE-

SA Website at http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/patents.html. Letters of Assurance may indicate

whether the Submitter is willing or unwilling to grant licenses under patent rights without compensation o r

under reasonable rates, with reasonable terms and conditions that are demonstrably free of any unfair

discrimination to applicants desiring to obtain such licenses.

Essential Patent Claims may exist for which a Letter of Assurance has not been received. The IEEE is not

responsible for identifying Essential Patent Claims for which a license may be required, for conducting

inquiries into the legal validity or scope of Patents Claims, or determining whether any licensing terms or

conditions provided in connection with submission of a Letter of Assurance, if any, or in any licensing

agreements are reasonable or non-discriminatory. Users of this standard are expressly advised that

determination of the validity of any patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is entirely thei r

own responsibility. Further information may be obtained from the IEEE Standards Association.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are

members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical

committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity.

ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted (see www.iso.org/directives).

IEEE Standards documents are developed within the IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating

Committees of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board. The IEEE develops its

standards through a consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards

Institute, which brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the

final product. Volunteers are not necessarily members of the Institute and serve without compensation.

While the IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to promote fairness in the consensus

development process, the IEEE does not independently evaluate, test, or verify the accuracy of any of the

information contained in its standards.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details

of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents) or the IEC list of patent

declarations received (see http://patents.iec.ch).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation of the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions

related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the World Trade

Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT)
see www.iso.org/iso/foreword.html.

ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-3 was prepared by the LAN/MAN of the IEEE Computer Society (as IEEE Std 8802-3:

2018) and drafted in accordance with its editorial rules. It was adopted, under the “fast-track procedure”

defined in the Partner Standards Development Organization cooperation agreement between ISO and

IEEE, by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee SC 6,

Telecommunications and information exchange between systems.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition (ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-3:2017), which has been

technically revised. It also incorporates the Amendments ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-3:2017/Amd 1:2017,

Abstract: Ethernet local area network operation is specified for selected speeds of operation from

1 Mb/s to 400 Gb/s using a common media access control (MAC) specification and managemen t

information base (MIB). The Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD )

MAC protocol specifies shared medium (half duplex) operation, as well as full duplex operation.

Speed specific Media Independent Interfaces (MIIs) allow use of selected Physical Layer devices

(PHY) for operation over coaxial, twisted pair or fiber optic cables, or electrical backplanes.

System considerations for multisegment shared access networks describe the use of Repeaters

that are defined for operational speeds up to 1000 Mb/s. Local Area Network (LAN) operation i s

supported at all speeds. Other specified capabilities include: various PHY types for access

networks, PHYs suitable for metropolitan area network applications, and the provision of power

over selected twisted pair PHY types.

Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents

IEEE documents are made available for use subject to important notices and legal disclaimers. These notices

and disclaimers, or a reference to this page, appear in all standards and may be found under the heading

“Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents.” They can also be obtained on

request from IEEE or viewed at http://standards.ieee.org/IPR/disclaimers.html.
Notice and Disclaimer of Liability Concerning the Use of IEEE Standards
Documents

IEEE Standards documents (standards, recommended practices, and guides), both full-use and trial-use, are

developed within IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating Committees of the IEEE Standards

Association (“IEEE-SA”) Standards Board. IEEE (“the Institute”) develops its standards through a

consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”), which

brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the final product. IEEE

Standards are documents developed through scientific, academic, and industry-based technical working

groups. Volunteers in IEEE working groups are not necessarily members of the Institute and participate

without compensation from IEEE. While IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to promote

fairness in the consensus development process, IEEE does not independently evaluate, test, or verify the

accuracy of any of the information or the soundness of any judgments contained in its standards.

IEEE Standards do not guarantee or ensure safety, security, health, or environmental protection, or ensure

against interference with or from other devices or networks. Implementers and users of IEEE Standard s

documents are responsible for determining and complying with all appropriate safety, security,

environmental, health, and interference protection practices and all applicable laws and regulations.

IEEE does not warrant or represent the accuracy or content of the material contained in its standards, and

expressly disclaims all warranties (express, implied and statutory) not included in this or any other

document relating to the standard, including, but not limited to, the warranties of: merchantability; fitness

for a particular purpose; non-infringement; and quality, accuracy, effectiveness, currency, or completeness of

material. In addition, IEEE disclaims any and all conditions relating to: results; and workmanlike effort.

IEEE standards documents are supplied “AS IS” and “WITH ALL FAULTS.”

Use of an IEEE standard is wholly voluntary. The existence of an IEEE standard does not imply that there

are no other ways to produce, test, measure, purchase, market, or provide other goods and services related t o

the scope of the IEEE standard. Furthermore, the viewpoint expressed at the time a standard is approved and

issued is subject to change brought about through developments in the state of the art and comments

received from users of the standard.

In publishing and making its standards available, IEEE is not suggesting or rendering professional or othe r

services for, or on behalf of, any person or entity nor is IEEE undertaking to perform any duty owed by any

other person or entity to another. Any person utilizing any IEEE Standards document, should rely upon his

or her own independent judgment in the exercise of reasonable care in any given circumstances or, as

appropriate, seek the advice of a competent professional in determining the appropriateness of a given IEEE

standard.
IN NO EVENT SHALL IEEE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL,
EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO :
PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; LOSS OF USE, DATA, OR PROFITS; OR
BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY,
WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR
OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE PUBLICATION, USE OF, OR RELIANCE UPON
ANY STANDARD, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE AND
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE WAS FORESEEABLE.

Translations

The IEEE consensus development process involves the review of documents in English only. In the event

that an IEEE standard is translated, only the English version published by IEEE should be considered the

approved IEEE standard.
Official statements

A statement, written or oral, that is not processed in accordance with the IEEE-SA Standards Board

Operations Manual shall not be considered or inferred to be the official position of IEEE or any of its

committees and shall not be considered to be, or be relied upon as, a formal position of IEEE. At lectures,

symposia, seminars, or educational courses, an individual presenting information on IEEE standards shall

make it clear that his or her views should be considered the personal views of that individual rather than the

formal position of IEEE.
Comments on standards

Comments for revision of IEEE Standards documents are welcome from any interested party, regardless of

membership affiliation with IEEE. However, IEEE does not provide consulting information or advice

pertaining to IEEE Standards documents. Suggestions for changes in documents should be in the form of a

proposed change of text, together with appropriate supporting comments. Since IEEE standards represent a

consensus of concerned interests, it is important that any responses to comments and questions also receive

the concurrence of a balance of interests. For this reason, IEEE and the members of its societies and

Standards Coordinating Committees are not able to provide an instant response to comments or questions

except in those cases where the matter has previously been addressed. For the same reason, IEEE does not

respond to interpretation requests. Any person who would like to participate in revisions to an IEEE

standard is welcome to join the relevant IEEE working group.
Comments on standards should be submitted to the following address:
Secretary, IEEE-SA Standards Board
445 Hoes Lane
Piscataway, NJ 08854 USA
Laws and regulations

Users of IEEE Standards documents should consult all applicable laws and regulations. Compliance with the

provisions of any IEEE Standards document does not imply compliance to any applicable regulatory

requirements. Implementers of the standard are responsible for observing or referring to the applicable

regulatory requirements. IEEE does not, by the publication of its standards, intend to urge action that is not

in compliance with applicable laws, and these documents may not be construed as doing so.

Copyrights

IEEE draft and approved standards are copyrighted by IEEE under U.S. and international copyright laws.

They are made available by IEEE and are adopted for a wide variety of both public and private uses. These

include both use, by reference, in laws and regulations, and use in private self-regulation, standardization,

and the promotion of engineering practices and methods. By making these documents available for use and

adoption by public authorities and private users, IEEE does not waive any rights in copyright to the

documents.

Photocopies

Subject to payment of the appropriate fee, IEEE will grant users a limited, non-exclusive license to

photocopy portions of any individual standard for company or organizational internal use or individual,

non-commercial use only. To arrange for payment of licensing fees, please contact Copyright Clearance

Center, Customer Service, 222 Rosewood Drive, Danvers, MA 01923 USA; +1 978 750 8400. Permission to

photocopy portions of any individual standard for educational classroom use can also be obtained throug h

the Copyright Clearance Center.
Updating of IEEE Standards documents

Users of IEEE Standards documents should be aware that these documents may be superseded at any time

by the issuance of new editions or may be amended from time to time through the issuance of amendments,

corrigenda, or errata. A current IEEE document at any point in time consists of the current edition of the

document together with any amendments, corrigenda, or errata then in effect.

Every IEEE standard is subjected to review at least every ten years. When a document is more than ten years

old and has not undergone a revision process, it is reasonable to conclude that its contents, although still o f

some value, do not wholly reflect the present state of the art. Users are cautioned to check to determine that

they have the latest edition of any IEEE standard.

In order to determine whether a given document is the current edition and whether it has been amended

through the issuance of amendments, corrigenda, or errata, visit the IEEE-SA Website at

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/standards.jsp or contact IEEE at the address listed previously. For more

information about the IEEE-SA or IEEE’s standards development process, visit the IEEE-SA Website at

http://standards.ieee.org.
Errata

Errata, if any, for all IEEE standards can be accessed on the IEEE-SA Website at the following URL:

http://standards.ieee.org/findstds/errata/index.html. Users are encouraged to check this URL for errata

periodically.
Patents

Attention is called to the possibility that implementation of this standard may require use of subject matter

covered by patent rights. By publication of this standard, no position is taken by the IEEE with respect to the

existence or validity of any patent rights in connection therewith. If a patent holder or patent applicant has

filed a statement of assurance via an Accepted Letter of Assurance, then the statement is listed on the IEEE-

SA Website at http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/patents.html. Letters of Assurance may indicate

whether the Submitter is willing or unwilling to grant licenses under patent rights without compensation o r

under reasonable rates, with reasonable terms and conditions that are demonstrably free of any unfair

discrimination to applicants desiring to obtain such licenses.

Essential Patent Claims may exist for which a Letter of Assurance has not been received. The IEEE is not

responsible for identifying Essential Patent Claims for which a license may be required, for conducting

inquiries into the legal validity or scope of Patents Claims, or determining whether any licensing terms or

conditions provided in connection with submission of a Letter of Assurance, if any, or in any licensing

agreements are reasonable or non-discriminatory. Users of this standard are expressly advised that

determination of the validity of any patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is entirely thei r

own responsibility. Further information may be obtained from the IEEE Standards Association.
