10BaseFL Standard

The IEEE committee published a specification for running Ethernet over fibre optic cable. This resulted in the 10BaseFL (10Mbps, baseband, over fibre optic cable) specification, which is an Ethernet network that uses fibre optic cable to connect computers and repeaters. The maximum distance for a 10BaseFL segment is 2000 metres (about 6500 feet).
