Gigabit

A Gb is the unit symbol of gigabit, which is a multiple of unit bits. This unit is used for measuring the amount of data. In short, Gigabit is also called Gbit.
In the word gigabit, Giga denotes the ninth power of 10, which means 109.
1 kilobit is equivalent to following values:

  • 109 bits,
  • 1 000 000 000 bits,
  • 1000 megabits.
  • 1000 000 kilobits.

1000 terabits are present in 1 gigabit.
It is used for measuring the data transfer rate of input/output connections. Gigabit (Gb) is that unit, which is larger than Megabit (Mb) and smaller than the unit terabit (Tb).

Difference between Gigabit and Gigabyte

Gigabit is a unit which is smaller than the Gigabyte. Gigabit is usually used in measuring the data rates, while Gigabyte is used to measure the data stored in the storage devices. The Gb is a symbol of Gigabit, whereas GB is a symbol of Gigabyte.
1 gigabyte = 8 gigabits.
