10Base-T
Last modified: Thursday, January 29, 2004 

One of several adaptations of the Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) standard for Local Area Networks (LANs). The 10Base-T standard (also called Twisted Pair Ethernet) uses a twisted-pair cable with maximum lengths of 100 meters. The cable is thinner and more flexible than the coaxial cable used for the 10Base-2 or 10Base-5 standards.

Cables in the 10Base-T system connect with RJ-45 connectors. A star topology is common with 12 or more computers connected directly to a hub or concentrator.

The 10Base-T system operates at 10 Mbps and uses baseband transmission methods.

Also see the Ethernet Designations chart in the Quick Reference section of Webopedia.
