ABSTRACT
The article discusses the difference between Ethernet and Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) in the U.S. When DOCSIS was created, its purpose is to move Internet Protocol (IP) data over cable's hybrid-fiber coax (HFC) networks. Ethernet describes how interconnected things communicate over a shared medium differently.
