The IEEE has developed a set of standards for the operation of a 100 Mbps Ethernet Network. The three additions to the 802.3 document are 100BASE-TX, 100BASE-FX, AND 100BASE-T4. 100BASE-TX is designed to operate over two pairs of category 5 UTP cabling. 100BASE-FX is designed to operate over two optical fibers, and 100BASE-T4 is designed to operate over four pairs of category 3 or 5, UTP, ScTP or STP cabling.

The network consists of a central hub that is connected in a star-wired configuration to individual workstations containing a network interface card. The IEEE 802.3 100BASE-T standard recommends the use of category 5 UTP cabling for network implementation. Category 5 structured cabling that is compliant with the TIA/EIA 568-A standard will fully support a 100BASE-T network.
