    Ethernet 10BASE-T Copper Interface Specifications

    The 10BASE-T copper standard is supported on M Series, MX Series, and T Series routers.

    To determine which transceivers support the 10BASE-T copper standard, see Supported Network Interface Standards by Transceiver for ACX Series, M Series, and T Series Routers. The “Cables and connectors” section in the description for each MIC or PIC lists which standards and transceivers are supported for that device.
