Nowadays cabling based on symmetrical copper cables is dominant in almost all telecom applications; glass fibers predominate in long-distance networks. Whereas just a few years ago l0-Mbit/s Ethernet (l0BaseT) had the main share of interfaces in star or tree structures, today’s pure star networks are predominantly set up on the basis of 100-Mbit/s connections.
