10Base5

Definition of the noun 10base5

What does 10base5 mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard using a type of cable called Thick Ethernet or RG-8 which is thick and yellow and has markings at every 2.5 meters, which designation means the following: (1) the cable transmission speed is 10 Mbps, (2) the transmission is in baseband, and (3) the length of the cable should be no more than 500 meters.

Explanation

10BASE5 was the original commercially available variant of Ethernet. For its physical layer it used cable similar to RG-8/U coaxial cable but with extra braided shielding. This is a stiff, 0.375-inch diameter cable with an impedance of 50 ohms, a solid center conductor, a foam insulating filler, a shielding braid, and an outer jacket. The outer sheath was often yellow-to-orange/brown foam fluorinated ethylene propylene so it often is called "yellow cable", "orange hose", or sometimes humorously "frozen yellow garden hose".
