Ethernet is the enduring success story of local area networking. Now into its third decade it continues to develop and improve with support for faster speeds, new interfaces and longer transmission distances. The latest generation of Ethernet continues the tradition of increasing the transmission speed by tenfold to a staggering 10 Gigabit per second. It supports transmission distances of up to 40km when using single-mode fiber optic cabling and enables critical business applications that were not previously available using previous Ethernet standards. In this SMC Technology Primer authors explain the jargon and show how one can benefit from the latest 10 Gigabit Ethernet standard.
