Back in the 90s, I was with one of the early networking companies, Chipcom, and we sold all the “current” technologies – token-ring, ATM and Ethernet. Ethernet ended up beating them all – it was simple to configure and just plain worked (I remember how ironic it was that ATM switches had a 10M Ethernet management port!). Ethernet was also far less expensive than token-ring or ATM. Low-cost combined with simplicity and reliability; it’s a winning combination every time.
