    - A data packet on an Ethernet link is called an Ethernet packet, which transports an Ethernet frame as its payload.

    - Each Ethernet frame starts with an Ethernet header which contains destination and source MAC address.

    - The maximum size of the payload field in an Ethernet frame is 1500 bytes.

    - The Ehternet frame ends with a frame check sequence (FCS) which is a 32 bit cyclic redundancy check used to detect any in-transit corruption of data.
