Introduction to Ethernet
Ethernet is the most popular LAN technology in use today. The Ethernet standard is defined by the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers IEEE Standard 802.3.
Other LAN types include Token Ring, Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), and LocalTalk. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Ethernet strikes a good balance between speed, price and ease of installation. These strong points, combined with wide acceptance into the computer marketplace and the ability to support virtually all popular network protocols, makes Ethernet the perfect networking technology for many computer users today.
Introduction to Token Ring
Networking with Token Ring is a sophisticated LAN technology that is largely used by IBM and is defined by the IEEE 802.5 standard.
Token Ring uses a star-wired topology in which all workstations connect to a central Multi station Access Unit (MAU). This makes moving , changing, and adding equipment quick and easy.
Token Ring is fault-tolerant. If, for example, the cable to one of your network PCs is damaged or cut, the MAU automatically bypasses that port. Because the logical ring stays intact, your network stays up.
