What Is a Distributed Backbone Network?
In a distributed backbone network, information is sent from a LAN terminal on the backbone to another LAN on the same bridge. Once information is sent to another LAN, the LAN connects to the backbone bridge, forms a frame of data, and sends it to the destination LAN and terminal through the backbone. Each backbone bridge maintains a table of LANs. Backbones may be Gigabit Ethernet or Fiber optic cabling.
Bus backbone structure
A distributed bus structure is used to connect multiple computers to form a network. It uses a backbone structure consisting of multiple switches, which are connected to each other. These switches act as the connection point between individual LANs. This structure has a limited scalability, and it only works if all devices are connected to a central connection point. In a distributed bus, however, each device is connected to a different set of switches, which form a network.
Gigabit Ethernet is a high-speed, high-capacity networking standard for enterprise networks. Its Ethernet framing standard, 802.3, supports up to 1 Gbps of bandwidth and uses a technology known as Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA/CD) to detect and handle collisions between transmissions. This protocol is used for many purposes in enterprise networks, including connecting servers, workstations, and routers for high-bandwidth applications.
Fiber optic cabling
The distributed backbone network uses fiber optic cables as its communications infrastructure. Fiber optics are a popular choice for building backbone networks and have revolutionized the telecommunications industry. They work in environments with electromagnetic interference and offer more power and flexibility than copper cabling. Smart building platforms can help users get the most out of fiber optic cabling and maximize its potential. Listed below are some important things to consider when installing fiber optic cabling.
