Fast Ethernet (100Mb) Network Speed
Fast Ethernet was the first-ever throughput extension of the switched Ethernet standard beyond 10 Mbps. Fast Ethernet (IEEE 802.3u) has a maximum data rate of 100 Mbps and is the first Ethernet standard created specifically to operate in a star wired bus topology. Fast Ethernet standards for fiber include 100Base-FX, 100Base-SX, 100Base-BX10 and 100Base-LX10. Fast Ethernet standards for copper include 100Base-TX, 100Base-T4 and 100Base-T2, 100Base-T1 and 100BaseVG.
For many enterprises, Fast Ethernet is the default LAN access technology, with Fast Ethernet switches providing Layer 2 networking for end users. Fast Ethernet access switches can also support Power-over-Ethernet applications. Fiber optic backbone or user connections are facilitated by SFP ports that offer flexible support of a wide range of fiber cables and connectors. Fast Ethernet switches are also available as unmanaged plug-and-play switches or with SNMP management agents.
Transition Networks’ Fast Ethernet Switches are ideal for supporting end users by providing Layer 2 networking capabilities. Our switches are available as managed or unmanaged to best fit all network management needs. Also, our switches are available in enterprise grades and hardened temperature grades to provide the most flexibility for your network regardless of the location.
