10 GIGABIT ETHERNET

Introduction:

LAN forms basis for all fields like commercial, can be research and even data communication. But the present application asks for higher bandwidth so that huge data is sent. Ethernet which is a cost-effective technology is being used for all local area networks. For high speed a transmission medium called coaxial cable is used along with repeaters. And using transceivers around 250 machines can be attached via transceivers. So that maximum speed can be obtained. Optical Ethernet is a technology which helps Ethernet to extend LAN into MANS AND WANS. Where the usage of Ethernet LAN is mostly in enterprise applications where as optical Ethernet is providing service I.e. it is responsible for delivery of data on time to different users based on their requirement.

Ethernet:

The data is sent via frames. An Ethernet frame consists of the fields with minimum packet size and maximum packet size, both source and destinations address, and also a protocol-type field. And the address fields needs to be globally unique. i.e. Ethernet is simple technology. Ethernet supports IP traffic as IP and Ethernet together and Optical Ethernet supports all types of applications it can be either voice applications or data applications.

10 Gigabit Ethernet:

The one Gigabit Ethernet is used in large number of corporate and even the public networks then the movement of Ethernet from LAN encompass to MAN. In the time 10 Gigabit Ethernet standards has reached its completion.

Conclusion: We can conclude that Ethernet which is a cost-effective technology is being used for all local area networks. For high speed a transmission medium called coaxial cable is used along with repeaters.
