Ethernet has risen to complete dominance for local area networks over its forty years of existence. The first Ethernet experimentals versions started in 1972 (patented 1978). The commercialization of Ethernet started in 1980′s.
Today, Ethernet is everywhere. It’s evolved from a 2.93-Mb/s and then 10-Mb/s coax-based technology to one that offers multiple standards using unshielded twisted pair (UTP) and fiber-optic cable with speeds over 100 Gb/s. Ethernet, standardized by the IEEE as “802.3,” now dominates the networking world. And the quest for more variations continues onward.
I have posted a lot of articles to this blog on Ethernet. Now I have created a category specifically for Ethernet postings to https://www.epanorama.net/blog/category/ethernet/
I have tried to tag all Ethernet related existing posts to this category so that Ethernet information is easy to find.
