100 BASE-T4

This option is designed to avoid overwriting. It is used for half-duplex communication using four wire-pairs of the existing category 3 UTP cables, which are already available for telephone services in homes/offices. Two of four pairs are bi-directional; other two are unidirectional. This means that there are 3 pairs to be used for carrying data, in each direction (2 bi-directional and 1 uni-directional) as shown in Fig. Because 100Mbps data cannot be handled by voice-grade UTP, this specification splits the 100 Mbps flow into three 33.66 Mbps flows.
