Ethernet Cable Specifications

This section contains wiring specifications, types, and limits of 10BaseT and 100BaseT Ethernet cable.

Straight-Through vs. Crossover Ethernet Cable

A crossover cable is used to connect two standard MDI-X ports when connecting two hubs or a hub and a switch together. When the Micro Hub MDI/MDI-X button is OUT, port 5 is an MDI-X port like any other port on the hub. When the Micro Hub MDI/MDI-X button is IN, port 5 is then similar to a port adapter, and you can use a standard straight-through cable between hubs.

Crossover 10BaseT/100BaseTX Cable

Examples of Micro Hub Wiring Limits

This section provides two examples of using the Micro Hub in simple network configurations, as specified in the IEEE 802.3u standard. These configurations were designed to satisfy the requirements of most networks that are built to the EIA/TIA-568 wiring standard. This standard specifies 100-meter Category 5 cable connections from wiring closets to desktops.


Note   In any configuration, the maximum Category 5 cable length is 100 meters.


Example 1: Single Hub, Category 5 Segments

With only Category 5 cable segments, the maximum length for any cable segment is 100 meters, as shown in .

Figure B-1 Single Micro Hub with Category 5 Cable Segments

Example 2: Two Hubs, Category 5 Segments

When stations are connected to the Micro Hubs with 100-meter Category 5 UTP cable segments, the Category 5 cable connecting the two Micro Hubs is limited to a distance of 5 meters, as shown in . This configuration can have up to 14 connected stations.
