The Ethernet Ethernet was created to fulfill the needs of long distance, low-speed networks, and specialized computer room networks that carried data at high speeds for very limited distances. Ethernet is well adapted to applications in which a local communication medium must carry sporadic, occasionally heavy, traffic at high-spead data rates.
Ethernet-Popularness There are several LAN technologies in use today, but Ethernet is by far the most popular technology for departmental networks. The ability to link a wide range of computers using a vendor-neutral network technology is essential in a university environment. Ethernets can be linked together to form extended networks using devices called bridges and routers. Bridges can be used to link multiple Ethernets within a department to support more computers.
Ethernet and Computers Each Ethernet-equipped computer, also known as a station, operates independently of all other stations on the network, and there is no central controller. All attached stations are connected to a shared media system. Signals are broadcast over the medium to every attached station.
Ethernet The Ethernet system consists of three basic elements: 1. the physical media used to carry Ethernet signals between computers, 2. a set of media access control rules embedded in each Ethernet interface that allow multiple computers to access the shared Ethernet channel, and 3. an Ethernet packet, or frame, that consists of a standardized set of fields used to carry data over the system.
Ethernet Fast Ethernet allows you to preserve investments in existing cabling, since the technology is capable of running on Cat 3,4,5 cabling. The Ethernet is a good way of connecting networks with good signal for long distances.
