Network /Technology Network protocols are the fundamental mechanisms for network communications. They specify the software attributes of data communications, including the structure of a packet and the information contained therein. Protocols may also prescribe some or all of the operational characteristics of the hardware on which they run. Examples of network protocols include IPX, TCP/IP and AppleTalk®.
   Protocols       
   Your choices are...         
   AppleTalk®       AppleTalk® is a networking protocol for connecting Macintosh® computers to each other, or to shared devices. AppleTalk was designed to run over LocalTalk® networks, but can also run on Ethernet and Token Ring.  AppleTalk, Macintosh, and LocalTalk are registered trademarks of Apple Computer, Inc. 
   ATM       Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a high-speed, point-to-point, switched network technology that uses fiber optic or Category 5 (Cat-5) copper cabling. ATM transmits data in cells rather than frames and can carry text, audio, and video. Each cell is a packet that contains 5 bytes of routing information and 48 bytes of data. Basic networks run at 155 Mbps, but implementations that use fiber optic cable can achieve speeds as high as 660 Mbps. The basic desktop standard runs at 25 Mbps.

   10Base-T Ethernet       10Base-T Ethernet or twisted-pair Ethernet is an adaptation of the IEEE 802.3 standard for local area networks (LAN). 10Base-T uses twisted-pair cables with a maximum length of 100 m and is thinner and more flexible than the coaxial cable used with the 10Base-2 or 10Base-5 standards. 10Base-T cables connect with RJ-45 connectors. The 10Base-T system operates at 10 Mbps and uses baseband-type transmission. 
   10Base-2 Ethernet       10Base-2 Ethernet or thinnet is an adaptation of the IEEE 802.3 standard for local area networks (LAN). 10Base-2 uses 50-ohm coaxial cables (RG-58 A/U) with a maximum length of 185 m. 10Base-2 cable is thinner and more flexible than the cable used with the 10Base-5 standard. Cables in the 10Base-2 systems connect with BNC connectors. 10Base-2 systems operate at 10 Mbps and use baseband-type transmission.

Using optical fiber, FC-AL supports full-duplex data transfer rates of 100 Mbps. Eventually, FC-AL is expected to replace SCSI in high-performance storage systems. 
   FDDI       Fiber distributed data interface (FDDI) is a reliable, high-speed backbone for mission critical and high traffic networks. It transports data at 100 Mbps and can support up to 500 stations on a single network. FDDI was designed to use fiber cables, transmitting light pulses to convey information between stations; however, it can also run on copper wire with electrical signals. 
   Fieldbus       Fieldbus is a bi-directional communications protocol used for communications among field instrumentation and control systems. 
   Frame Relay       Frame relay is a packet-switching wide area network (WAN) technology for interconnecting LANs at high speeds. Frame relay defines the interface between user equipment and a WAN; however, it does not define the internal operation of the network, or the interfaces or protocols used within the WAN itself. For this reason, the term "frame relay clouding" is often used to describe the internal operation of a LAN that has a frame relay interface. 
   INTERBUS®       INTERBUS® is a fieldbus network based on the cyclic, serial transmission of input/output data between a master and slave stations. Common versions include INTERBUS-S®, INTERBUS-R®, and INTERBUS-MUX® (MUX).

SONET defines a physical-interface optical line rate known as optical carrier (OC). It also defines the frame format and an operating, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P) protocol. 
   Token Ring       Token ring is a network transport typology in which attached devices must receive a supervisory frame or token before they can transmit data. Token ring networks are wired in a circular or star-shaped configuration and provide transmission speeds of 4 or 16 Mbps. They are less common than Ethernet networks, but are suitable for many high-speed, high-traffic applications. Token ring networks adhere to the IEEE 802.5 standard and medium access protocol (MAC) protocol.
