Building Physical Ethernet Networks with UTP

For this second of three major sections of this chapter, I focus on the individual physical
links between any two Ethernet nodes. Before the Ethernet network as a whole can send
Ethernet frames between user devices, each node must be ready and able to send data over
an individual physical link. This section looks at some of the particulars of how Ethernet
sends data over these links.

This section focuses on the three most commonly used Ethernet standards: 10BASE-T
(Ethernet), 100BASE-T (Fast Ethernet, or FE), and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet, or GE).
Specifically, this section looks at the details of sending data in both directions over a UTP
cable. It then examines the specific wiring of the UTP cables used for 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps,
and 1000-Mbps Ethernet.
