Coax, Coaxial Cable
The data bus connections used to interconnect different
communication modules inside a networking
Provides a redundant connection for a primary port in
mission critical applications. The firmware activates the
backup port when the primary port loses link test or
becomes autopartitioned by the hardware. The repeater
allows any port in the repeater to back up another port
within the repeater.
A type of connector used for thin coaxial cable. BNC
connectors are used to connect stations in a ThinNet
Bootstrap Protocol. You can use a BOOTP server to set
the initial repeater configuration parameters (e.g., IP
address, IP net mask, IP default gateway) and to assist in
downloading the latest version of the Flash. A repeater
BOOTP request contains the repeater's MAC address.
The repeater uses four 16KB sectors of Flash as the
firmware boot sectors. The boot sectors, which are
hardware write-protected, cannot be modified by
downloading the Flash.
A program running on a computer connecting two LANs
that allows traffic from one network to be exchanged
with the other network. The networks can be the same or
different (e.g., Ethernet and Token Ring).
The monitoring of a local area network by a node to
determine if another node is transmitting.
A type of shielded cable used in communication
networks. Different types of coaxial cable include
Ethernet and RG-6.
Simultaneous transmission on the communication
