Bandwidth

The amount of data which can be transmitted within a fixed time period.

bps – Bits per second

kbps – kilobits per second

mbps – Megabits per second

*USB pushes data through faster than serial*

Simplex – One way transmission

Half-duplex – Data goes both ways but only one way at a time

Full-duplex – Data can go both ways at the same time. 100mbps full-duplex means a bandwidth of 100 mbps in both directions.
