In this video, learn about 1000BASE and 10GBASE Ethernet standards.
- In the 1990s, the Ethernet powers that be…came up with Gigabit Ethernet.…And Gigabit Ethernet really changed things…in that it took us from 100 megabits per second…to 1,000 megabits per second.…So when we're talking about Gigabit Ethernet,…traditionally what we're talking about…is 1,000 base something.…Now, there are four Gigabit Ethernet standards…that you're going to see on the Network+ exam.…First of all is a very old one and a weird one…called 1000BaseCX.…
1000BaseCX is weird because it's a copper standard…but it uses a very strange coaxial cable called Twinax.…And, it was a whopping 25 meters between…your switch and the individual nodes.…Now, there actually is some 1000BaseCX out there.…I've seen a few installations, but it's…for the most part rare and weird.…The other three use more traditional Fiber-Optic…or UTP-type cabling.…On the Fiber-Optic side, you have two.…You have 1000BaseSX, which uses multi-mode…Fiber-Optic cable and can have distances…up to about 500 meters.…
Then you have 1000BaseLX, which uses single-mode…
