Definition - What does Bits Per Second (bps) mean?

Techopedia explains Bits Per Second (bps)
Bits per second is the standard measure of bit rate speed. However, millions of bits can be transferred in a second and measuring in single bit units can be cumbersome. To simplify data transfer rates, an International System of Units prefix is used. These include kilo, mega and giga.
