Performance Evaluation of a LAN Under Different Ethernet Wiring Standards with Different Frame Size
In this paper, the authors simulate an office LAN using IT Guru Opnet 9.1 and then they calculate the performance of this network under 10BaseT and 100BaseT Ethernet wiring standards with different frame size and finally they compare the results i.e. which standard perform better for which frame size. They find that numbers of collision counts at hubs are always more in 10BaseT, because of the nature of this standard. Hubs are always more utilized in 10BaseT, because of more retransmission attempts due to high number collisions under 10BaseT. Initially when frame size is 1500 Bytes, they find that 100BaseT standard is performing well because the switch filters more traffic.
