Ethernet media standerd
Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet, are identified by three part names , which is also know as Media standard. An example of Media Standard is 10BASE-T.
The first part of Media Standard specifies the transmission speed.
The second part of Media standard the “BASE” specifies that the Ethernet signal is a baseband single.
The final part of the Ethernet Media standard the kind of cable used.
NOTE: X represents a higher grade of connection and 100BaseTX is twisted pair cable cabaling that can use either UTP or STP at 100 Mbps. With Fibar optic cable such as 100BaseFX, the speed is qucker then standard 10BaseF. The “L” stand for Long wave length lasers and “S”stand for short wave Length.
