Cabletron Ethernet

We’ve started looking at 1980s Ethernet products recently, and Cabletron was one of the most prominent Ethernet vendors at the time.

I stumbled upon this Ethernet Technology Guide published by Cabletron, and found it to be a very comprehensive of Ethernet history and how the physical LANs were built (10base5, 10base2, 10baseT) particularly the multi-port transceivers which would attach 8 AUI ports to one transceiver.

More Cabletron stuff to follow! We have some Cabletron hardware on the way.
