In 1973 Bob Metcalfe invented and constructed the first Ethernet Network. His invention included the cabling methodology for connecting Ethernet devices as well as communication standards. Each device on the Ethernet network can communicate with any other device on the network. Ethernet technology has been one in which networks operate to connect devices in close proximity. Initially networks were limited to a few hundred yards, but today Ethernet networks can cover miles. In order for devices on the same network to communicate, they must share the same protocol. Ethernet provides a path for signal transmission. In the past use of coaxial copper cable was common. Today twisted pair or fiber optic cabling are more likely to be used. Short messages called frames are communicated from node to node. Ethernet devices have unique addresses. Signals on the Ethernet are transmitted to every node so each node examines each message to see… read more →
