I know that Ethernet is a Data Link Layer protocol which specifies how the communication takes place b/w nodes in LAN defined by standard IEEE 802.3. I came across a book in which there were different types of Ethernet to name a few.
- 10BASE2 (Thin Ethernet)
- 10BASE5 (Thick Ethernet)
Are these all different Ethernet types are referencing to different version of Ethernet standard or it is different technologies that Ethernet can be used over defined in Ethernet Standard IEEE 802.3.
