  • Token Ring And Fddi Networks
    1,003 words
    Introduction Have you ever listened or sat in on a concept or network design meeting and been fed an alphabet soup of acronyms and words or technical jargon that just didn't make sense to you? Well, the chances are that Ethernet, Token Ring, FDDI, and Wireless were among some of those being spoken. In this writing, the author plans to help one understand, in simple terms (where possible), what exactly these technologies are and where they may belong. He provides an overview of each, explains the...
  • High Level Protocols And Ethernet Addresses Computers
    4,214 words
    Critical Analysis of Ethernet: How used and why businesses need itMGT 301 Ethernet: How used and why businesses need it Introduction Networks are increasingly important in the business use of computers as well as for the applications and data that networks can deliver. If a single computer with standard desktop software, such as, word processing, spreadsheets, and databases, can make anyone more productive, then connecting multiple computers on a network brings individuals and data together to i...
  • Lan Ethernet And Wan Tdm Networks
    1,699 words
    Metro Ethernet Disclaimer; this is intended to be an introductory technical article; certain details have been excluded in the interests of space and clarity. Network design examples are presented to illustrate specific technical points and are not intended to fully complete. Historically WAN's (Wide Area Networks) and LAN's (Local Area Networks) have relied on independent technologies. At a physical layer WAN technologies today continue to be based largely on legacy TDM systems that were built ...
  • Thick Ethernet Cabling
    2,633 words
    Bob Metcalfe of the Xerox Corporation developed the first experimental Ethernet system in late 1972. The goal of the Ethernet was to interconnect the Xerox Alto Aloha Network. The experimental Ethernet was used to link Altos workstations, servers, and laser printers. Data transmission of the Ethernet was 2.94 Mbps. In 1973, Metcalfe changed the name to 'Ethernet,' to make it clear that the system could support any computer, and not just Altos, and to point out that his new network mechanisms had...
  • Gigabit Ethernet Network
    1,205 words
    ABSTRACT In this paper, we will conduct a comparison on Fast Ethernet Network Switches and Gigabit Ethernet Network Switches offered by 3 COM. We will review a few specific components, as well as compare features, pricing and preferred usage. DEFINITION In order to have a greater understanding of the terminology and descriptions offered in this paper, we must first understand what a network switch is. A brief definition of a network switch is a computer networking device that connects network se...
  • Requirements Of B The Network Equipment
    1,282 words
    Barrett & Barrett Advertising NJ is the newly established satellite office of Barrett & Barrett Advertising CA. Due to their increasing number of East Coast clientele, they have opened a satellite office to accommodate that business. B & B Advertising currently employs 56 people, 5 of which will transfer to the NJ office upon final renovations. Although a small outfit by number, gross sales for fiscal year 1998 exceeded $18,000,000.00. B & B CAs current computer usage is significantly high. Thei...
  • Existing Networks Besides Fast Ethernet
    1,561 words
    The urging demand for higher transmission speeds prompted by fast network growth has been answered by the creation Fast Ethernet specification (I 802.3 u) known as 100 BASET. Fast Ethernet has put the plank for data transmission rate from 10 Megabits per second to 100 Megabits, but most importantly it was possible to achieve with only minimal changes to the existing cable structure. Moreover, the emerged technology has feature called Auto negotiation that provide compatibility with 10 BASET lega...
  • Existing Ethernet Networks
    845 words
    Network Report (Ethernet and LANs) Due date: 12th September Ethernet is a physical and data link layer technology for LAN networking. When it first began to be widely deployed in the 1980's, Ethernet supported a maximum theoretical data rate of 10 megabits per second (Mbps). More recently, Fast Ethernet standards have extended traditional Ethernet technology to 100 Mbps peak, and Gigabit Ethernet technology extends performance up to 1000 Mbps. Gigabit Ethernet, a transmission technology based on...
  • Minimum Length Of A Standard Ethernet Frame
    504 words
    LANs: Introduction & Ethernet 1. Discuss factors that limit speed of operation and range in cables. 2. Discuss the techniques used to enable Ethernet to operate at speeds of 100 Mbps, or more. 3. Consider the transfer of a million bytes of data from one station to another, distance D apart, by means of encapsulation. What is the total elapsed time and effective throughput for the following cases: a. A circuit-switched, star topology local network. Call set-up time is negligible and the data rate...
  • High Level Protocols And Ethernet Addresses Computers
    4,291 words
    A gentlemen by the name of Bob Metcalfe realized that he could improve on a system called the Aloha System which arbitrated access to a shared communications channel. He developed a new system that included a mechanism that detects when a collision occurs (collision detect). The system also includes "listen before talk", in which stations listen for activity (carrier sense) before transmitting, and supports access to a shared channel by multiple stations (multiple access). Put all these componen...
