Port Speed vs Access Speed

Port Speed = MAX speed rate potential for the physical port (GigabitEthernet = 1G, TenGigabitEthernet = 10G)
Access Speed = how fast can data transfer

Example:
10G Port Speed
5G Access Speed

The physical port will be a 10G port. Think, what type of port am I plugging this fiber or copper hand-off into. But you can only transfer at 5G.
