The Definitive Guide 2nd ed. A Fast Ethernet adapter can be logically divided into a media access controller MAC , which deals with the higher-level issues of medium availability, and a physical layer interface PHY. Maximum distance is limited to meters. Contemporary Control Systems, Inc. In rare cases the MII may be an external connection but is usually a connection between ICs in a network adapter or even two sections within a single IC.

No specific connector is defined. It runs on twisted pair or optical fiber cable in a star wired bus topologysimilar to the IEEE standard It requires four twisted copper pairs of voice grade twisted paira lower performing cable compared to ibtel 5 cable used by BASE-TX.
With today’s equipment, crossover cables are generally not needed as most equipment support auto-negotiation along with auto MDI-X to select and match speed, duplex and pairing. The mapping of the original bits to the symbol codes is not constant in time and has a fairly large period appearing as a pseudo-random sequence.

ETX – Computer-On-Module
It uses these two pairs for simultaneously transmitting and receiving on both pairs  thus allowing full-duplex operation. This page was last edited on 82551m Decemberat Views Read Edit View history. Archived from the original PDF on The standard is intended for automotive applications or when Fast Ethernet is to be integrated into another application.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. It was slated for standardization as IEEE It supports only full-duplex, transmitting in both directions 82551qn. Ethernet family of local area network technologies.
All are or were standards under IEEE A full-duplex mode is also specified and in practice all modern networks use Ethernet switches and operate in full-duplex mode, even as legacy devices that use half duplex still exist. The letter following the dash “T” or “F” refers to the physical medium that carries the signal twisted pair or fiber, respectivelywhile the etjernet character “X”, “4”, etc.
Fast Ethernet – Wikipedia
The final mapping from symbols to PAM-5 line modulation levels obeys the table on the right. One pair is reserved for transmit, one for receive, and the remaining two switch direction. Alternatively it is possible to connect two devices directly using a crossover cable.
Fast Ethernet – Data rate: Switched, Fast, and Gigabit Ethernet. This places the active pairs on the orange and green pairs canonical second and third pairs.
In rare cases the MII may be an external connection but is usually a connection between ICs in a network adapter or even two sections within a single IC.
A very unusual 8B6T code is used to convert 8 data bits into 6 base-3 digits the signal shaping is possible as there are nearly three times as many 6-digit base-3 numbers as there are 8-digit base-2 numbers.
Contemporary Control Systems, Inc. Maximum distance is limited to meters.
However, BASE-TX introduces an additional, medium dependent sublayer, which employs MLT-3 as a final encoding of the data stream before transmission, resulting in a maximum fundamental frequency of The fact that 3 pairs are used to transmit in each direction makes BASE-T4 inherently half-duplex.
The two resulting 3-digit base-3 symbols are sent in parallel over 3 pairs using 3-level pulse-amplitude modulation PAM When used to build a local area networkthe devices on the network computers, printers etc. Retrieved 6 June
