10BaseF networks, which operate at 10 megabits per second (Mbps), support the longest cable length with a maximum distance of 2,000 meters (m) or 2 kilometers (km).  10BaseF is also know as 10BaseFL.

Networks configured with a 10Base2 topology support a maximum cable length of 185 m.

Networks built on a 10Base5 topology support a maximum cable length of 500 m.

The 10BaseT and 100BaseT topologies support a maximum distance of 100 m between two devices.
