Abstract
Today's LANs are governed by two sets of standards. First, the IEEE 802 standards address the needs of low and medium speed LANs employing twisted pair and coaxial cable mediums. Second, the Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) standard addresses the needs of high-speed LANs for backbone connectivity using optical fibers. This thesis examines both sets of standards along with their architecture with an emphasis placed on fiber optic. It is aimed to provide the reader with introductory and tutorial materials and function as a primary reference for those who need an understanding of the technology.
