10Mbps, 5-4-3 Rule (Total: 500m), RJ-45 connector, 100m maximum segment
100Mbps, 3 network segments and 2 repeaters (Total: 300m), RJ-45 connector, 100m maximum segment
10Mbps, Star Topology (Repeaters use Bus), Connects workstations to LANs or connects 2 repeaters (no more than 2), Maximum distance: 1000m, 2000m with repeaters
100Mbps, 2 strands of wire, 412m in half-duplex, 2000m full duplex, only 1 repeater, Star Topology, repeater use bus.
1000Mbps (1Gbps), LX = long wavelengths of 1300 nanometers, SMF 5000m, MMF 550m, only 1 repeater, excellent choice for long backbones connecting buildings in MAN or connecting ISP with telecomms.
1Gbps, only MMF, less expensive than LX, SX = shortwaves of 850 nanometers. Distance depends on diameter: 50 microns = 550m; 62 microns = 275m. Best suited for shorter networks such as data center to telecomm center.
10-Gigabit Fiber-Optics: SR
Short Reach (MMF), 850 nanometers. Cable diameter: 50 microns = 300m, 62.5 microns = 66m.
10-Gigabit Fiber-Optics: LR
Long Reach (SMF), 1310 nanometers, 10,000 meters.
10-Gigabit Fiber-Optics: ER
Extended Reach (SMF), 1550 nanometers, 40,000m or 25 miles.
