Notes - Metric Units

The following are notes from Computer Networks written by Tanenbaum 5th edition.

  • The basic idea here is to remember that in computer science and networks, although metric system is used, there are times when a different version is used with the same acronym
    • kilo 210 rather than 1000
    • 1024 bytes is 1 KB
    • lowercase b means bits, 8 bits in one Byte
