Another advantage of 10Base-T
's star design is its flexibility: It allows computers to be moved easily between offices.
"With Raylan's equipment, we were able to plug in 10Base-T
lines, fiber lines and AUI lines and AUI ports and everything talked to each other."
The wireless network is Wi-Fi compliant, works at the 2.4-GHz-frequency range and provides a bandwidth of up to 11 Mbps, similar in performance to a standard 10Base-T
Units can be connected to a network via the SMC 91C96 10Base-T
Ethernet controller and onboard RJ45 connector.
The AirPort system consists of the AirPort Card, which has a slot in iBook, and AirPort Base Station, which contains a 56K modem and a 10BASE-T
Ethernet port for connecting to a phone line, cable or DSL modem or local area network for terrestrial Internet access.
The converter also converts 10Base-T
devices to 100Base-TX, for networks migrating to 100 Mbps.
The HP 9100C offers five-minute fast track installation, the HP Smart Compression Technology, Adobe Portable Document Format and an integrated LDAP address book manager and is available for GBP2,392 for the Ethernet 10Base-T
version and GBP2,518 for Token Ring, 10Base-T
Combo and 10/100Base-T versions.
Designed on a tiny PCB encased in a finger-sized blue translucent casing for direct plug and play, is fully compliant with Industry Standards IEEE 802.3 10Base-T
and 802.3u 100BaseTX, providing 10/100 Mbps network connectivity with Category S UTP cable.
Hewlett-Packard has cut prices by as much as 37% in North America on four of its HP ProCurve 10Base-T
line of hubs.
The terminal can be equipped with two EIA-232, -422 or -485 serial ports; Ethernet 10Base-T
or a Power-over-Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) interface.
