Chapter 1. SOHO Network Uses/Applications > General Networking Approaches

General Networking Approaches

After examining the SOHO LAN applications, we turn our examination to the general approaches to SOHO networking. These approaches deal with the communications channel or wiring and the networking protocols used. An approach is embodied in the Network Interface Card (NIC).

Most often the wire and the networking protocol are married together for life because they are implemented in a NIC. However, it is possible to see a wider variety of networking approaches today. There is nothing that mandates that Ethernet run at 100 Mbps over unshielded twisted pair wire. With that said, I must stress that the more esoteric combinations of wiring and protocol are most often some manufacturer's response to a niche market, and are not anywhere near the market mainstream.
