ARCNET was the first widely available networking system for microcomputers ; it became popular in the s for office automation tasks. ARCNET was less expensive than either, more reliable, more flexible, and by the late s it had a market share about equal to that of Ethernet. The small number of possible nodes and the need to manually configure IDs was a disadvantage compared with Ethernet, particularly as large enterprise networks became common. Skip to main content. One further advantage that ARCNET enjoyed over collision-based Ethernet is that it guarantees equitable access to the bus by everyone on the network.

A star-wired bus was much easier to build and expand and was more readily maintainable than the clumsy linear bus Ethernet of the time.

In spite of ARCNET’s deterministic operation and historic suitability for real-time environments such as process control, the general availability of switched gigabit Ethernet and Quality of service capabilities in Ethernet switches has all but eliminated ARCNET today.
ARCNET also has the advantage that it achieved its best aggregate performance under the highest loading, approaching asymptotically its maximum throughput.

See other items More In response to greater bandwidth needs, and the challenge of Ethernet, a new standard called ARCnet Plus was developed by Datapoint, and introduced in However, because of its simple, robust nature, ARCNET controllers are still sold and used in industrial, embedded, and automotive applications.

Add to cart – Best Offer: Delivery times may vary, especially during peak periods. This disadvantage can also be seen as an advantage, often the cost of a 4 port ARCNET passive hub was less than cost of the 4 BNC Tee connectors and 2 terminators that thin Ethernet requires to connect 4 computers, and unlike BNC Tee connectors that could sometimes be hard to obtain in the early days of Ethernet, an ARCNET passive hub could be easily manufactured in the field with 9 readily available parts 4 connectors, 4 resistors and a box to put them in.

Learn More – caed in a new window or tab Zrcnet ARCNET had the disadvantage of requiring either an active or passive hub between nodes if there were more than two nodes in the network, while thin Ethernet allowed nodes to be spaced anywhere along the linear coax cable.
Larger networks would have to be split into smaller networks, and bridged.
