Sample Network Topologies

This section shows you a few sample network topologies in which the HP 10/
100 Hubs are implemented. For more topology information, see the document
Designing HP AdvanceStack Workgroup Networks, which can be found on
the HP network products World Wide Web site, http://www.hp.com/go/
procurve.
For information on 100Base-T network topology rules, see the card "Connec-
tivity Rules for 100T Networks" that is included with your hub.
Connecting End Nodes to HP 10/100 Hubs
"Fast" Ethernet
"straight-through"
twisted-pair
cables
Description
Connect end nodes (PCs, workstations, servers, printers and other peripherals) to the HP 10/100
hubs by using "straight-through" twisted-pair cables, as shown in the above illustration. The server
should be connected at 100 Mbps to reduce bottlenecks as multiple users attempt to access the
server.
Cables Used
10 Mbps connections: Category 3, 4, or 5 100-ohm "straight-through" unshielded twisted pair cable
100 Mbps connections: Category 5 "straight-through" unshielded twisted pair cable only
Maximum
100 meters for both 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps connections to end nodes
