Unformatted text preview: topology with star topology and increased the data rate to 100 Mbps. Gigabit Ethernet increases the speed even more, to 1000 Mbps. Optical fiber is the common choice medium. Ten-Gigabit Ethernet targets wide area networks and only supports full duplex mode. Its speed runs at 10 Gbps. 4. Define and describe the four standard Ethernet implementations. 10Base5. It uses a bus topology with thick coaxial cable. The transceiver is connected by cable. 10Base2 also uses a bus topology, but with thinner and more flexible cabling. The transceiver is in the NIC card inside the station. 10Base-T uses a physical star topology with 2 pairs of twisted cable. 10Base-F uses a star topology with 2 fiber-optic cables....
