Extending a Network

Ethernet specifications limit the length of cable between hubs and PCs to 100 meters for a total
diameter of 200 meters. By adding Fast Ethernet switches between hubs, the network is
expanded by 200 Mbps with the addition of each switch. The follow diagram illustrates a
network of NetComm Switch.
