IEEE standards

   The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), acting as a coordinating body, has established a number of telecommunications standards, including Group 802 as follows:
   • 802.1D
   An access-control standard for bridges linking 802.3, 802.4, and 802.5 networks.
   • 802.2
   A standard that specifies the Data Link layer for use with 802.3, 802.4, and 802.5 networks.
   • 802.3 1Base5
   A standard matching the AT&T StarLAN product with a 1Mbps data transfer rate and a maximum cablesegment length of 500 meters (1640 feet).
   • 802.3 10Base2
   An implementation of the Ethernet standard on thin Ethernet cable with a data transfer rate of 10Mbps, and a maximum cable-segment length of 185 meters (600 feet).
   • 802.3 10Base-T
   A standard for Ethernet over unshielded twisted-pair wiring, the same wiring and RJ45 connectors used with telephone systems. The standard is based on a star topology, in which each node connects to a central wiring center, with a cable-length limitation of 100 meters (325 feet).
   • 802.3 10Broad36
   A standard for longdistance Ethernet with a 10Mbps data rate and a maximum cable-segment length of 3600 meters (11,800 feet).
   • 802.4
   A standard for bus topology networks that use token passing to control access and network traffic, running at 10Mbps. Not widely implemented.
   • 802.5
   A standard for ring networks that use token passing to control access and network traffic, running at 4Mbps or 16Mbps. It is used by IBM's Token Ring network.
   • 802.6
   An emerging standard for metropolitan area networks (MANs) transmitting voice, video, and data over two parallel fiber-optic cables, using signaling rates of up to 155Mbps.
   • 802.7
   The Broadband Technical Advisory Committee provides advice on broadband techniques to other IEEE subcommittees.
   • 802.8
   The Fiber-Optic Technical Advisory Committee provides advice on fiber-optic technology to other IEEE subcommittees.
   • 802.9
   The Integrated Data and Voice (IDV) Networks group is currently working to integrate data, voice, and video to 802 LANs and ISDN. Now more commonly referred to as Iso-Ethernet.
   • 802.10
   The Network Security Technical Advisory Group is developing a standard definition of a network security model.
   • 802.11
   The Wireless Networking group is developing standards for wireless networks.
   • 802.12
   The Demand Priority group is working on standards for the 100Mbps Ethernet standard.
   • 802.14
   The Cable Modems group is defining standards for data transport over traditional cable TV networks.
   You will also see many of these standards referred to by their ISO reference numbers. IEEE standards 802.1 through 802.11 are also known as ISO standards 8802.1 through 8802.11.
   For more information, see the entries on the individual standards.
