Celebrating 40 years of Ethernet Innovation – Session 1 – Panel 1b

Panel 1b. Ethernet or Ethernot?
The 1980s witnessed the birth of the Local Area Network, and an explosion of LAN technologies – DECNet, WangNet, AppleTalk, HYPERchannel, VG-AnyLAN, ARCNET and Token Ring to name a few. A decade later, Ethernet had seen off all these competitors. What was it about Ethernet – as technology and/or business model – that caused this? And what would today’s world look like if, say, Token Ring had triumphed?

Panellists: Bob Belleville; Dan Pitt; John Shoch; Pat Thaler
