Definition Edit

A network segment is a portion of a computer network wherein every device communicates using the same physical layer.

Overview Edit

Devices that extend the physical layer, such as repeaters or network hubs, are also considered to extend the segment. However, devices that operate at the data link layer level or higher create new physical layers and thus create rather than extend segments.
