1000Base-T (1,000 million bites per sec base twisted pair) falls under both 802.3ab (1Gb Ethernet technology that runs over 4 pairs of cat 5 or better) and 802.3af (specifies PoE, requires cat5 or better)
Is just that I want to make sure 1000Base-T can fall under more than one standard. I haven't seen much standards except 802.2, 802.3, 802.5, 802.11, 802.16 and the ones im learning now so im not really sure..... if one thing can have multiple standards imposed on it at the same time.
802.3z is defined as 1,000 Base Ethernet technologies.
The book says that only 1,000base-SX and 1,000base-LX fall under this.... but what about 1,000base-T? Sounds to me that 1,000base-t should fall under 802.3z to but the book doesn't say it does.
802.3ae is defined as 10-Gb Ethernet technologies
The book lists all the 10-Gb ones (10Gbase-SR, 10Gbase-SW, 10Gbase-LR, 10Gbase-LW, 10Gbase-ER and 10Gbase-EW), except for 10Gbase-T shouldn't 10GBase-T fall under standard 802.3ae?
I'm going back to learning the rest of these standards hope to get some help.
