What is Inter Packet Gap or Inter Frame Gap?

Let’s assume if a Gigi port which could transfer raw data up to 125,000,000 bytes per second with minimum frame size of 64 bytes. Device must need some time to process one packet after another. The difference of time to process from one packet to another is known as inter-frame or inter-packet gap. The minimum inter frame gap period is 96 bits or 12 bytes which amounts to 96 nano seconds + 7 byte of preamble and 1 byte of delimiter consequence 84 bytes.
