  What is VoIP

ETHERNET


 

Ethernet is a technical term associated with a local-area network (LAN) architecture.

Ethernet uses CSMA/CD method to handle simultaneous demands. It is one of the most widely implemented LAN standards.

Early versions supported 10 Mbps (Mega bits per second) followed by 100 Mbps rates and currently 1000 Mbps (1 Gigabit) mainly using fibre optic cabling.

For most home users (and to be honest probably most businesses to the desktop) 100 Mbps Ethernet is what you will come across. Most routers and switches available to the home user will use 100 Mbps RJ45 ports for Ethernet cabling. You will probably see the term Cat 5e associated with Ethernet network cabling, this is the most commonly used nowadays.
