In this video, explore the old days of coax-based Ethernet.
- The overwhelming majority of all wired networks…in existence in the world today are ethernet.…And pretty much every one of those…ethernet networks out there has some kind of box,…a switch, with cables running out to the individual hosts.…But interestingly enough, with early ethernet,…it didn't work that way.…Right here in front of me is an example…of the first generation of ethernet.…This was called 10Base5.…You had this huge yellow cable…that was running up in the ceilings,…and then you had this big box.…
This thing is actually screwed in…through a vampire connector.…You tear into it, and you hook it in,…and this transceiver made your connection.…And then from the transceiver you had this little…connector here which would go down to your ethernet cable.…So this guy would be way up in the ceiling,…and then your ethernet cable would be plugged…into your computer and wherever you wanted to put a…computer you just made a drop and that's where the term…drop comes from when we're in the networking world.…Now, no one's used 10Base5 in a long time.…
