10BaseF

See 10Base-F.



10Base-F

A 10 Mbps Ethernet standard that uses optical fibers to extend the distance up to 1.2 miles compared to the 100 meter limitation of 10Base-T copper wires. All stations are wired in a star configuration to a repeater or central concentrator using ST or SMA connectors. Older Ethernet computers with AUI connectors used a fiber-optic transceiver to connect to a 10Base-F network.

10Base-FL, 10Base-FP and 10Base-FB
10Base-FL defines the link between concentrator and station; 10Base-FP defines a star-coupled network; 10Base-FB defines a fiber backbone. See Ethernet and 10Base-T.
