Question 1.
Describe the cabling, connectors, and interfaces required for a 10base2 Ethernet network connecting 4 nodes spaced ten feet apart and arranged in a line on a service counter. List all the equipment required to connect the four nodes on a bus network.

A 10 base 2 Ethernet is also called a thin Ethernet, and its name is derived from the fact that the coaxial that is used is thinner than the coaxial cable that is used for a Thick Ethernet. The 10 in 10 base 2 stands for "10 Mbps operation, base is for baseband operation, and two is for a maximum of 200 meters of cable segment length" (Computer Solutions, 2012). The 10 base 2 Ethernet network connecting four nodes spaced ten feet apart and arranged in a line on a service counter would require two BNC terminators, which would equip the first node and the last node with one each.
Also required for the bus network are three 10 base 2 coaxial cables that are at least ten feet long, which will connect the four nodes. The network also requires four 10 base 2 Ethernet adapters, as one will be used for each of the four nodes, and four BNC T-connectors, which will be used for connecting each coaxial cable in ...
