First, some intro.
Ethernet traffic is transported in units of a frame, where each frame has a definite beginning and end.

In this model we define:

Preamble Field used for synchronization, 8 Bytes - 64-bits

Destination Address Ethernet address of the destination host, 6-Bytes, 48-bits

Source Address Ethernet address of the source host, 6-Bytes, 48-bits

Type Type of data encapsulated, e.g. ...
