FireWire

FireWire™195 (Apple computer has the trademark on the name Firewire, also know as IEEE1394) was developed as a high-efficiency bus for connection of various devices to the computer and was even considered as a possible alternative to SCSI. Further, similar relations with the ATM196 and network architecture allow connecting the bus to several computers with an opportunity to work in a point-to-point mode. Accordingly, it is possible to construct a star with the use of a hub so there is a possible construction of multiple networks including diverse device types. It is possible to connect one hub to some computers, hard disk drives or any other device, and, it is easy to adjust an exchange between them. In this plan, the bus is in a bit better situation than Ethernet. Any FireWire-HDD can be considered as the network storage device without any additional investments, whereas the usual network storehouses are expensive. High speeds up to 400Mbps make FireWire the excellent competitor for 100BaseT.
