10 Base 2 Coax

Thinnet also carries data at 10Mbit/sec, uses thinner cable, and cannot exceed 185 meters per segment. Practically speaking, due to its thinner size, the maximum throughput of 10Base2 cable is less than that of 10Base5 cable.

÷________10 Mbit/sec______ô185 meters

All but the smallest 10Base2 and 10Base5 networks are normally constructed of multiple lengths, or segments, of cable. The segments of cable are chained together into larger networks using network hardware such as repeaters and routers, which we’ll discuss in more detail in the chapter on Physical Devices.

Thinnet has a reputation for being inexpensive to install, as well as less awkward to handle than Thicknet. Its down side is that due to the relative fragility of the cable, and the non-fault-tolerant nature of bus networks, the maintenance cost of a Thinnet network can be high due to the frequency of repairs and time spent tracing faults on long Thinnet segments.
