Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is ordinary telephone twisted pair wire. 10BASE-T supports Ethernet’s 10 Mbps transmission speed.

Here is the SearchNetworking definition for 10BASE-T.

    10baseT is ethernet over twisted pair cable. Cat 3 was the original standard for this, but is now usually over cat 5 or better (cat 5e or cat 6) cabling as this has become the standard that has been installed for the past several years (probably at least 10 years now). The cabling spec is set out by the EIA/TIA 568 standard.

    For an expanded definition, WhatIs.com has a complete explanation of 10BASE-T that I find useful. More of the implications of 10BASE-T's approval are explored in an article written by SearchNetworking.com's infrastructure and project management expert Carrie Higbie in an article called "10GBASE-T standard now approved."

    Hi,

    It is One of the most common types of Ethernet in use today. This particular implementation uses four-pair UTP wiring (Cat3 or higher, but most commonly you will see Cat5) using RJ-45 connectors. Each cable is connected from each network device to a central hub in a physical star topology. Within the hub, the signals are repeated and forwarded to all other nodes on the network because it is a logical bus topology. Older network interface cards are configured with jumpers to set addresses and interrupts.
    Today's network interface cards can be managed through a diagnostic program, or automatically configure themselves through plug and play technology. There is a limit of 1024 devices on an Ethernet segment, plus you can have a maximum of 1024 network segments. A UTP cable has a maximum distance of 100 meters, which is equivalent to 328 feet. check this  10Base-T Definition.

    Hope this helps
