10BASE-FB

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The 10BASE-FB (10BASE-FiberBackbone) is a network segment used to bridge network hubs. Due to the synchronous operation of 10BASE-FB, delays normally associated with Ethernet repeaters are reduced, thus allowing segment distances to be extended without compromising the collision detection mechanism. The maximum allowable segment length for 10BASE-FB is 2000 meters.
