Introduction to the History of Wired LAN Panel (7:34)

Geoff Thompson lays out the scope of the presentation, gives a brief synopsis of his résumé and introduces the members of the panel. He points out that this panel represents a small slice of a very large topic and he also provides a pointer to a good reference on the history of the wired LAN.  The focus of the panel is on the time period from 1984 to 1995 ; 1995, being the year of the 100BaseT standard ratification.
