ABSTRACT
Analyzes the implications of the decision of the Internet Engineering Task Force to move toward standardizing Ethernet frames that exceed the current 1.5K-byte limit. Inefficiency of Ethernet's frame size for transferring large blocks of data; Jumbo Frames' capacity to maintain Media Access Control frame structure and frame check sequencing mechanism used on traditional frames.
