10 Base 5

10 Base 5 is a designation for 802.3 Ethernet twisted-pair cable. The 10 indicated bandwidth of 10 Mbps, the base indicates it’s a baseband transmission technology, and the T indicates that the medium is twisted-pair. (Minimum segment length is around 100 meters, or 328 feet, but the precise measurement depends on the manufacturer’s testing results for the particular cable.)
