Emphasize: The table in the figure, compares 10baseT and Fast Ethernet. It also describes where in the hierarchical model Ethernet and Fast Ethernet can be seen.
Purpose: This figure further compares various Ethernet options.
Purpose: This figure illustrates the different ports used in Ethernet. Emphasize: RJ-45 ports are common on Cisco platforms. Some devices also offer DB-15 interfaces for AUI. If the cable is fiber, the port will look different. Point each port out to the students. Note: If you have devices available that have the various ports, show the actual ports to your students.

Positioning Ethernet in the Campus Access Layer Distribution Layer Core Layer Ethernet 10BaseT Position Fast Ethernet Position Access Layer Distribution Layer Core Layer Provides connectivty between the end user device and the access switch. Not typically used at this layer. Gives high-performance PC and workstations 100-Mbps access to the server. Provides connectivity between access and distribution layers. Provides connectivity from the distribution to core layer. Provides connectivity from the server block to the core layer. Provides inter-switch connectivity. Not typically used at this layer.
