1000BASE-T This IEEE standard defines a Gigabit Ethernet local area network running 1000Mbps baseband over unshielded twisted-pair cabling. Throughput over 10Base-T is improved by decreasing bit latency periods and increasing packet speeds.
100BASE-T This IEEE standard defines an Ethernet local area network running 100Mbps baseband over unshielded twisted-pair cabling. Throughput over 10Base-T is improved by decreasing bit latency periods and increasing packet speeds.
10BASE-T This IEEE standard defines an Ethernet local area network running 10Mbps baseband over unshielded twisted pair cabling, typically Category 5.
10GBASE-T This proposed IEEE standard defines 10 Gigabit Ethernet running 10GMbps over unshielded twisted-pair cabling. Positioned as high speed technology to support Metropolitan Area Networks and other high-demand applications.
10GBASE-T This IEEE standard defines 10 Gigabit Ethernet running 10Gbps over balanced twisted-pair cabling.
802.11 standard 802.11, or IEEE 802.11, is a type of radio technology used for wire¬less local area networks (WLANs). It is a standard that has been developed by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers), http://standards.ieee.org. The IEEE is an international organization that develops standards for hundreds of electronic and electrical technologies. The organization uses a series of numbers, like the Dewey Decimal system in libraries, to differentiate between the various technology families.
802.11a An IEEE specification for wireless networking that operates in the 5 GHz frequency range (5.725 GHz to 5.850 GHz) with a maximum 54 Mbps data transfer rate. The 5 GHz frequency band is not as crowded as the 2.4 GHz frequency, because the 802.11a specification offers more radio channels than the 802.11b. These additional channels can help avoid radio and micro¬wave interference.
802.11b International standard for wireless networking that operates in the 2.4 GHz fre¬quency range (2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz) and pro¬vides a throughput of up to 11 Mbps. This is a very commonly used frequency. Microwave ovens, cordless phones, medical and scientific equipment, as well as Bluetooth devices, all work within the 2.4 GHz frequency band.
802.11g Similar to 802.11b, but this standard provides a throughput of up to 54 Mbps. It also operates in the 2.4 GHz fre¬quency band but uses a different radio tech¬nology in order to boost overall bandwidth.
