What is FE (Fast Ethernet)? Definition
Meaning: The acronym FE stands for Fast Ethernet.
Definition: Fast Ethernet also known as 100Base-T, it provides transmission speeds up to 100 megabits per second. FE began to be widely deployed in the mid-1990s as the need for greater LAN performance became critical to universities and businesses.
Many network adapters support both traditional and Fast Ethernet. These so-called “10/100” adapters can usually sense the speed of the line automatically and adjust accordingly.
FastEthernet has five different cabling standards outlined by IEEE 802, with 100Base-X being a general designation.
