10Base-T The name commonly used to refer to the older LAN technology which preceeded

100Base-T. Similar to 100Base-T, but running at 10MBit/s.

100Base-T Also known as Fast

Ethernet. Refers to the 100MBit/s network technology over TUP cable that is compatible with the

IEEE 802.3u standard. This is a collision-detect technology, i.e., a transmission that collides with another packet already on the

LAN, requires retransmitting the new packet. Various physical layer specifications exist, such as

100Base-TX which uses 2 pairs of

Category 5 UTP cable up to 100m in length.

A

auto-negotiation Uses a series of link pulses to encode hardware capability information, such that a hub and end node can agree upon the highest-performing configuration both are capable of using.

B

backplane For an I/O bus. The computer’s circuitry and connectors to which adapter cards connect.

C

CAT Category A cable quality rating. 100Base-T requires CAT-5 cable. See LAN cable.

collision The result of two or more nodes on an 802.3 network transmitting at the same time, producing a garbled transmission.

adapter An add-on computer interface card and circuitry that provides the physical connection and data translation between the host computers’s I/O bus and external devices or networks.

adapter slot The location where adapters attach to the backplane.

D

driver A portion of system code that allows communication between the operating system and the network card.

Glossary 33

Glossary

E

Ethernet A LAN that uses the

CSMA/CD method of access and transmits at 10Mbit/s on a bus or star topology. The IEEE 802.3

standard evolved from Ethernet, but they are not exactly the same.

Network devices based on both standards can co-exist on the same medium, but they cannot exchange data directly without special

“bilingual” software that can decode packets of both types. The drivers for the HP3000 network cards fit this requirement if configured correctly.

Ethernet address See station address.

H

HP-PB HP Precision Bus. Refers to the hardware I/O architecture.

The precision bus is the bus thru which these cards communicate with the CPU and memory.

I

IEEE 802.3u standard Part of the institute of Electrical and

Electronics Engineers 802 family of LAN standards. The 802.3u

standard extends the 802.3 MAC layer to 100MBit/s, and defines a new family of 100BBit/s physical layers (layer 1), such as 100Base-

TX, 100Base-T4, or 100Base-FX.

These are connected through a media independent access layer

(MII).

L

LAN See local area network.

LAN cable The medium through which data moves in a LAN, LAN cables come in many types. For example, thick (10 mm) coaxial cable, thin (5 mm) coaxial cable, fiber-optic cable, and shielded or unshielded twisted-pair cable. The

100Base-T cables are UTP CAT-5 only, even for 10MBit/s operation.

LED See light emitting diode.

light emitting diode A small light on a device that is often used to provide status information.

link beat A periodic signal transmitted in Ethernet and

IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T networks to inform one station of device of the presence of another. It also helps verify the integrity of the network link between them.

(Also called “link test pulse”.)

S

slot The physical place in the back of the computer where a card plugs in. Each slot has a number.

star topology A logically starshaped network layout where all traffic is passed through a single point (usually a hub). Hubs can then be connected to form multiple starts.

Station address A 12-digit hexadecimal number that identifies a specific network node, and allows messages to be directed to that node only. The first 6 digits are the same for all cards from a particular manufacturer. Each manufacturer is assigned a different 6-digit value. Then each card produced by that manufacturer has a different last

6 digits. This ensures that all cards from all manufacturers have a unique station address. HP manufactures cards with the first

6 digits being 080009 or 0060B0. A default value is permanently coded into each card, but this default can be overridden by the configuration.

T

token ring A network with a ring topology that uses a token for the purpose of establishing control.

Control of the network is passed with the token from one network device to another.

topology Topology can be physical or logical. Physical topology is the configuration of network nodes and links; a description of the physical geometric arrangement of the links and nodes. Logical topology is a description of the possible logical connections between network nodes indicating which pairs of nodes are able to communicate whether or not they have a direct physical connection.
