Short for Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fibre, EoPOF is used in home and office network cabling. Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fibre uses optical wave guiding to transmit data between devices. Because EoPOF cables are made of plastic, they can be easily cut with scissors, and there is no need to terminate copper cables or polish glass optical fiber. In addition to ease of use and installation, EoPOF cables are also immune to electromagnetic interference and are cheaper than optical fiber.

A key on computer keyboards, usually labeled Esc. In DOS and Windows environments, pressing the Escape key usually cancels or aborts the current operation.
Created by Nortel spin-off Elastic Networks, EtherLoop (a.k.a next generation DSL) is Ethernet over standard twisted pair (POTS ) technology that allows for simultaneous voice and high-speed data communications. Speeds range from 125 Kbps to 6 Mbps over distances of up to 21,000 feet. Similar to Ethernet, Etherloop transmits data packets in bursts. Between bursts, […]
A local-area network (LAN) architecture developed by Xerox Corporation in cooperation with DEC and Intel in 1976. Ethernet uses a bus or star topology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification served as the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. Ethernet uses the […]
- Ethernet Networking Interface
Ethernet Networking Interface, or ENI, allows any computer on Ethernet network to access controllers allowing users to send production data, alarm messages, or status information to computers, cellular phones, or pagers capable of receiving e-mail. The ENI module allows companies to leverage existing cable, hubs, switches, and routers already installed in facilities.
