  • Three Physical Layer Choices
  • 100BASE-T4 100BASE-TX 100BASE-FX
  • Concept facilitated by 10Mbps/100Mbps Adapter Cards
  • 100 BASE TFast Ethernet Details
  • UTP Cable has a 30 MHz limit
  • Not feasible to use clock encoding (i.e., NO Manchester encoding)
  • Instead use bit encoding schemes with sufficient transitions for receiver to maintain clock synchronization.
  • 100 BASE T4
  • Can use four separate twisted pairs of Cat 3 UTP
  • Utilize three pair in both directions (at 33 1/3 Mbps) with other pair for carrier sense/collision detection.
  • Three-level ternary code is used 8B/6T.
  • Prior to transmission each set of 8 bits is converted into 6 ternary symbols.100 BASE T4
  • The signaling rate becomes
  • 100 x 6/8 ------------ = 25 MHz 3
  • Three signal levels : +V, 0, -V
  • Codewords are selected such that line is d.c.balanced  all codewords have a combined weight of 0 or 1.
  • 100 BASE T4
  • Ethernet Interframe gap = 9.6 microseconds becomes 960 nanoseconds.
  • 100 m. station to hub; 200 meters between stations
  • Maximum of two Class II repeaters.
  • 100 Base TX
  • Uses two pair of twisted pair, one pair for transmission and one pair for reception. Uses either STP or Cat 5 UTP.
  • Uses MTL-3 signaling scheme that involves three voltages.
  • 100 BASE FX
  • Uses two optical fibers, one for transmission and one for recption.
  • Uses FDDI technology of converting 4B/5B to NRZI code group streams into optical signals.
  • Fast Ethernet Repeaters and Switches
  • Class I Repeater – supports unlike physical media segments (only one per collision domain)
  • Class II Repeater – limited to single physical media type (there may be two repeaters per collision domain)
  • Switches – to improve performance can add full-duplex and have autonegotiation for speed mismatches .
  • Collision DomainsGigabit Ethernet History
  • In February 1997 the Gigabit Ethernet Alliance announced that IEEE802.3z Task Force met to review the first draft of the Gigabit Ethernet Standard
  • According to IDC by the end of 1997 85% of all network connections used Ethernet.
  • Higher capacity Ethernet was appealing because network managers can leverage their investment in staff skills and training
  • 1000 BASE X (IEEE802.3z) was ratified in June 1998.
  • Gigabit Ethernet (1000 BASE X)
  • Provides speeds of 1000 Mbps (i.e., one billion bits per second capacity) for half-duplex and full-duplex operation.
  • Uses Ethernet frame format and MAC technology
  • CSMA/CD access method with support for one repeater per collision domain
  • Backward compatible with 10 BASE-T and 100 BASE-T
  • Uses 802.3 full-duplex Ethernet technology
  • Uses 802.3x flow control.
  • Gigabit Ethernet TechnologyFiber:1000 BASE SX short wavelength1000 BASE LX long wavelengthCopper:1000 BASE CX shielded twisted pair1000 BASE T unshielded twisted pair
  • Based on Fiber Channel physical signaling technology.

  • Allows any Physical Layer to be used with a given MAC
  • Namely, Fiber channel Physical Layer can be used with with CSMA/CD
  • Permits both full-duplex and half-duplex
  • 1000 BASE SX
  • Short wavelength
  • Supports duplex links up to 275 meters.
  • 770-860 nm range; 850 nm laser wavelength
  • Fiber Channel technology
  • PCS (Physical Code Sublayer)includes 8B/10B encoding with 1.25 Gbps line.
  • Only multimode fiber
  • Cheaper than LX.
  • 8B/10B Encoder1000 BASE LX
  • Long wavelength
  • Supports duplex links up to 550 meters.
  • 1270-1355 nm range; 1300 nm laser wavelength
  • Fiber Channel technology
  • PCS (Physical Code Sublayer)includes 8B/10B encoding with 1.25 Gbps line.
  • Either single mode or multimode fiber.
  • 1000 BASE CX
  • Shielded twisted pair
  • ‘Short haul’ copper jumpers
  • 25 meters or less typically within wiring closet.
  • PCS (Physical Code Sublayer)includes 8B/10B encoding with 1.25 Gbps line.
  • Each link is composed of a separate shielded twisted pair running in each direction.
  • 1000 BASE T
  • Four pairs of Category 5 UTP
  • IEEE 802.3ab ratified in June 1999??
  • Category 5, 6 and 7 copper up to 100 meters
  • This requires extensive signal processing.
  • Gigabit Ethernet compared to Fiber Channel
  • Since Fiber Channel (FC) already existed, the idea was to immediately leverage physical layer of FC into Gigabit Ethernet.
  • The difference is that fiber channel was viewed as specialized for high-speed I/O lines. Gigabit Ethernet is general purpose and can be used as a high-capacity switch.
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Viewed as LAN solution while ATM is WAN solution
  • Gigabit Ethernet can be shared (hub) or switched.
  • Shared types:
  • CSMA/CD with MAC changes:
  • carrier extension
  • Frame bursting
  • Buffered repeater {called Buffered Distributor}
  • Carrier ExtensionRRRRRRRRRRRRRFrameCarrier Extension512 bytes
  • For 10BaseT : 2.5 km max; slot time = 64 bytes
  • For 1000BaseT: 200 m max; slot time = 512 bytes
  • Carrier Extension :: continue transmitting control characters [R] to fill collision interval
  • This permits minimum 64 byte frame to be handled.
  • Control characters discarded at destination
  • For small frames net throughput is only slightly better than Fast Ethernet
  • Based on Raj Jain slideFrame BurstingFrameExtensionFrameFrameFrame512 bytesFrame burst
  • Source sends out burst of frames without giving up control of the network
  • Uses Ethernet Interframe gap filled with extension bits (96 bits)
  • Maximum frame burst is 8192 bytes
  • Three times more throughput for small frames
  • Based on Raj Jain slideBuffered DistributorHub
  • New type of 802.3 Hub where incoming frames are buffered in FIFOs
  • CSMA/CD arbitration is inside the distributor to transfer frames from an incoming FIFO to all outgoing FIFOs
  • All links are full-duplex
  • Frame-based 802.3x flow control to handle buffer congestion
  • Based on Raj Jain slide
