Ethernet is a Technology that is best normally used in wired Local Area Network (LAN). It provides a simple interface and for connecting multiple devices, such computers, switches and routers. It touches both Layer 1 (Physical Layer) and Layer 2 (Data Link Layer) on the OSI protocol model. A LAN is a Network of computers and other electronic that covers a small area such as an office and home. Its technical profile is the IEEE 802.3
Standards of Ethernet:
The standards forms could stand took free of charge at the next website: IEEE.
Belo is a list of changed usual of It also other data about every of them.
Benefits of the Ethernet:
The main benefits of using It for a LAN is because it is simple to set up a Network, It does not require any construction work to install, is supported by most routers and devices, such as laptops, desktops and other peripheries commonly used in an office and home.
Connector and Cable:
There are normally two ports is use, one for an RJ-45 jack that connects unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable and 2nd for a coaxial jack.
Cables used in networks:
- Unshielded Twisted Pair cable.
- Shielded Twisted Pair cable.
- Coaxial Cable.
- Fiber Optic Cable.
- Wireless LANs.
Speed and Support:
Ethernet has multiple standards that all use the same interface.
- 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet) – supports up to 1000 Mbps.
- 100BASE-T – supports up to 100 Mbps.
- 10BASE-T – supports up to 10 Mbps.
How to Works:
On a very simple level, this works by sending packets of data to Network. All other devices on the network check the packet as it moves around the Network to see if they’re the recipient. It requires technical knowledge in computer system to understand the mechanism behind this Protocol Fully. There are few limitations of this. This Operates on shared cable, length of the cable matters a lot in the performance of the Network.
