- IEEE 802.2search for term
A logical link control standard for local area networks (LANs). This standard of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) describes the function of the Logical Link Control (LLC) protocol used in both token ring and Ethernet LANs. 802.2 is one of a set of communications standards that define physical and electrical network connections. The 802.2 standard specifies the data link layer for use with 802.3 networks (thick, thin, twisted pair, and fiber-optic Ethernet networks) and with 802.5 networks (twisted pair or fiber-optic token ring networks).
