RE: Why not have both?

Title: RE: Why not have both?


I have to agree with Ariel.  The buffer repeater does not need to exist in the reference model because that is an implementation.  There is nothing in the current 802.3z standard that describes a full duplex buffer repeater, yet there are a few companies that make these devices.  Their implementations were not impeded by the standard, and their equipment was designed to conform with the 802.3z standard.
