IEEE 802x Protocols

The IEEE has defined various standards that relate to the 802.x protocols family, such as the descriptions for Ethernet in 80.2.3. Table 2.4 shows the IEEE standards for 802.x protocol standards, where x represents a standard.

Memorize the most common 802.x protocol standards, such as Ethernet 802.3. You need to be able to identify which protocol standard is relevant to Ethernet or Token Ring in today's networks.

Each IEEE standard has limitations, such as cable length and transmission speed. Chapter 4 covers 802.3 and 802.5 in detail. The "Need To Know More?" section at the end of this chapter suggests resources you can use to find more details on the 802.x family.

You are now ready to test the network theory knowledge you have been introduced to in this chapter by using the following practice questions. The practice questions are based on the material covered in this chapter

Table 2.4 IEEE 802.x protocol standards.
