New Ethernet Standard Solves Range Limitation for Industrial Apps (.PDF Download)

Robert Metcalfe, David Boggs, and their associates really started something back in 1973 when they invented Ethernet. It started out as just one of many contenders for LAN supremacy and essentially won the battle.

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.
