Fast Ethernet Technology
The growing importance of local area networks and the increasing complexity of
desktop computing applications are fuelling the need for high performance networks.
100Mbps Fast Ethernet is a standard specified by the IEEE 802.3 LAN committee. It is
an extension of the 10Mbps Ethernet standard with the ability to transmit and receive
data at 100Mbps, while maintaining the CSMA/CD Ethernet protocol.
Since the
100Mbps Fast Ethernet is compatible with all other 10Mbps Ethernet environments, it
provides a straightforward upgrade and takes advantage of the existing investment in
hardware, software, and personnel.
Switching Technology
A Switch bridges Ethernet packets at the MAC address level of the Ethernet protocol
transmitting among connected Ethernet or Fast Ethernet LAN segments.
Switching is a cost-effective way of increasing the total network capacity available to
users on a local area network. A Switch increases capacity and decreases network
loading by dividing a local area network into different segments. These segments do not
compete with each other for network transmission capacity.
The Switch acts as a high-speed selective bridge between the individual segments.
The Switch, without interfering with any other segments, automatically forwards traffic
that needs to go from one segment to another. By doing this the total network capacity
is multiplied, while still maintaining the same network cabling and adapter cards.
For Fast Ethernet networks, a Switch is an effective way of eliminating problems of
chaining hubs beyond the “two-repeater limit.” A Switch can be used to split parts of the
network into different collision domains, making it possible to expand your Fast Ethernet
network beyond the 205-meter network diameter limit for 100BASE-TX networks.
Switches supporting both traditional 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet are
also ideal for bridging between the existing 10Mbps networks and the newer 100Mbps

Appendix B – Detail on Operation & Features
Switching LAN technology is a marked improvement over the previous generation of
network bridges, which were characterized by higher latencies. Routers have also been
used to segment local area networks, but the cost of a router, the setup and maintenance
required make routers relatively impractical. Today Switches are an ideal solution to
most kinds of local area network congestion problems.
- The Switches were designed for easy installation and high Performance in an
environment where traffic on the network and the number of users increase
- The Switches with their small, compact size were specifically designed for small to
medium sized workgroups.
These Switches can be installed where space is
limited; moreover, they provide immediate access to a rapidly growing network
through a wide range of user-reliable functions.
- The Switches are ideal for deployment with multiple high-speed servers for shared
bandwidth 10Mbps or 100Mbps workgroups.
With the highest bandwidth
200Mbps (100Mbps full-duplex mode), any port can provide workstations with a
congestion-free data pipe for simultaneous access to the server.
- The Switches are expandable by cascading two or more Switches together. As all
ports support 200Mbps, the Switches can be cascaded from any port and to any
number of Switches.
- The Switches are a perfect choice for site planning to upgrade to Fast Ethernet in
the future. Ethernet workgroups can connect to the Switches now, and change
adapters and hubs anytime later without needing to change the Switches or
reconfigure the network.
- The Switches combine dynamic memory allocation with store-and- forward
Switching to ensure that the buffer is effectively allocated for each port, while
controlling the data flow between the transmit and receive nodes to guarantee
against possible packet loss.
- 10 -
Appendix B – Detail on Operation & Features
- The Switches are an unmanaged 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch that offers solutions
in accelerating small Ethernet workgroup bandwidth.
Other key Features are:
- Auto MDI/MDI-X on each port for Uplink to another Switch, hub or repeater.
- Store and forward Switching scheme capability. As the result of complete frame
checking and error frame filtering, this scheme prevents erroneous packets from
transmitting among segments.
- NWay Auto-negotiation for any port.
This allows for auto-sensing of speed
(10/100Mbps) thereby providing you with automatic and flexible solutions in your
network connections.
- Flow control for any port. This minimizes dropped packets by sending out collision
signals when the port’s receiving buffer is full.
Note that flow control is only
available in half-duplex mode.
- Data forwarding rate per port is at wire-speed for 100Mbps speed.
- Data forwarding rate per port is at wire-speed for 10Mbps speed.
- Data filtering rate eliminates all error packets, runts, etc. per port at wirespeed for
100Mbps speed.
- Data filtering rate eliminates all error packets, runts, etc. per port at wirespeed for
10Mbps speed.
- Up to 1K active MAC address entry table per port with self-learning and table-aging
for the Switch.

Appendix B – Detail on Operation & Features
Address Table
The Switch is implemented with an address table. Each entry is used to store the
address information of nodes in network, including MAC address, port no, etc. The
information comes from the learning process of the Ethernet Switch.
When one packet comes in from any port, the Ethernet Switch will record the source
address, port number and other related information in address the table.
information will be used to decide either forwarding or filtering for future packets.
Forwarding & Filtering
When a packet comes from a port on the Ethernet Switch, it will also check the
destination address besides the source address.
The Ethernet Switch looks up the
address table for the destination address. If no address is found, this packet will be
forwarded to all the other ports except the port which this packet comes in. And these
ports will transmit this packet to the network that it is connected to. If found, and the
destination address is located at different port from this source packet port, the Ethernet
Switch will forward this packet to the port where this destination address is located
according to the information from the address table. However, if the destination address
is located at the same port with this packet comes in, then this packet will be filtered.
Thereby increasing the network throughput and availability
Store-and-Forward is one type of packet-forwarding technique. A Store-and-Forward
Ethernet Switch stores the incoming frame in an internal buffer, performs complete error
checking before transmission. Therefore no error packets occur; this is the best choice
when a network needs efficiency and stability.
The Switch scans the destination address from the packet header, searches the
routing table provided for the incoming port and forwards the packet, but only if required.
- 12 -
Appendix B – Detail on Operation & Features
The fast forwarding makes the Switch attractive for connecting servers directly to the
network, thereby increasing throughput and availability. However the Switch is most
commonly used to segment existing hubs, which nearly always improves overall
An Ethernet Switch can be easily configured in any Ethernet network
environment to significantly boost bandwidth using conventional cabling and adapters.
Due to the learning function of the Ethernet Switch, the source address and
corresponding port number of each incoming and outgoing packet are stored in a routing
table. This information is subsequently used to filter packets whose destination address
is on the same segment as the source address. This process confines network traffic to
its respective domain, reducing the overall load on the network.
The Switch performs “Store-and-forward” therefore, no error packets occur.
importantly, it reduces the re-transmission rate. So no packet loss will occur.
The STP ports on the Switch have built-in “Auto-Negotiation.”
This technology
automatically sets the best possible bandwidth when a connection is established with
another network device.
This is done by detecting the modes and a speed at the instant a device is connected.
