Use of Ethernet
The Ethernet is a computer networking technology for Local Area Networks (LAN). It has been commercially available since 1980 and has been replacing most of the competing wired LAN standards. People use the Ethernet everyday without knowing that they do so. Most of the people using it will not even know what Ethernet really is.
Working in an office one uses Ethernet all the time. LAN connects all the equipment in offices, such as printers, computers, scanners and others. If somebody is working on a computer and wants to print out his results he uses LAN connections, and therefore Ethernet, to send the information to the printer, which prints the results on paper. Or somebody scanning a document the data is transferred through these LAN cables from the scanner to the computer. There are many more examples for the use of Ethernet in an office.
Large companies need their employees to communicate all the time. It can be quite a hassle to run from one office to another and talk to people face to face. But there are important information to pass on and arrangements to make. Therefore people have to communicate on a regular basis. Using Ethernet people can send short messages from one computer to another within the office building. This saves a lot of time and nobody can claim to not be informed over important changes. Documents can also be sent from one computer to another using internet. Today a lot of companies use the internet to send documents and emails but using the internet is not as save as using a local network. Email accounts can be hacked and important details or information can be stolen. Companies which try to prevent this still use local networks to communicate.
The Ethernet can be used in many different ways. LAN does not only connect all the equipment in an office it also can be used to communicate within it. Therefore Ethernet is very useful and is a great invention. Many companies use Ethernet and it will continue to be important the life of employees which use it every day.
