Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet are various types of ethernet and are very high in speed.
Following are the important differences between Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet.
|Sr. No.||Key||Fast Ethernet||Gigabit Ethernet|
|1||Successor||Fast Ethernet is successor of 10-Base-T-Ethernet.||Gigabit Ethernet is successor of Fast Ethernet.|
|2||Network speed||Fast Ethernet speed is upto 100 Mbps.||Gigabit Ethernet speed is upto 1 Gbps.|
|3||Complexity||Fast Ethernet is simple to configure.||Gigabit Ethernet is quiet complex to configure.|
|4||Delay||Fast ethernet generates more delay.||Gigabit ethernet generates less delay than Fast Ethernet.|
|5||Coverage Limit||Fast Ethernet coverage limit is upto 10KM.||Gigabit Ethernet coverage limit is upto 70KM.|
|6||Round trip delay||Fast Ethernet round trip delay is 100 to 500 bit times.||Gigabit Ethernet round trip delay is 4000 bit times.|
