A contraction of transmitter/receiver. A device capable of both transmitting and receiving data.
   The data may be located on the network interface card that connects a workstation to a network, or it may be on a separate device. A transceiver can convert between an AUI (Attachment Unit Interface) Ethernet connection and another type of cabling, such as fiber-optic, coaxial, or unshielded twisted pair (UTP).
