Fostral Information Technologies - Networking

If the computers in your office are running on a network, they are most likely connected using Ethernet technology. Ethernet, particularly FastEthernet is the most popular networking standard in use today. (10BaseT Ethernet is now
growing obsolete. GigabitEthernet, while it is a new technology, is getting more and more popular, and no doubt will take over from FastEthernet in the future.)
Ethernet networks are generally faster than the alternatives, although other technologies are closing the speed gap. Because Ethernet is so popular and simple, the essential components of Ethernet networking are easily available and surprisingly inexpensive.
Judging by either speed or capacity, wireless local networks are no competitors compared to modern wired solutions (so far). However, one clear advantage has allowed them to break their way through to our desktops, printers, laptops and handhelds – mobility. There is no need to worry about an extra network point for a new device. You are not tied to your workplace with your laptop, and you can work in any part of your office covered by wireless access point without interruption. Home users may be interested in the technology as well. Running new cables through your newly refurbished house is hardly something you would agree with.
