ms means milliseconds.

In your example:
  • "192.168.2.1" is the IP address of the device (network connection identifier of the device).
  • "14-35-8B-01-67-50" is the MAC address of the device (physical identifier of the device).
  • "1 ms" is Round-Trip Time (RTT). It shows how long it took to receive a response from that device. In this case it took 1 millisecond.
  • "Mediabridge Products" is the name of the device vendor.
