Q

What is the difference between CRTP and Ethernet?

SearchVoIP.com expert panelist Carrie Higbie answers a user-submitted question that asks for a comparision of CRTP and Ethernet.

Recently we [a service provider] have begun implementing an IP network for our CDMA network. Would CRTP be implemented along with Ethernet in this case? Could you explain the difference between CRTP and Ethernet?
You are really comparing apples to oranges here. cRTP is a compressed IP header. By compressing datagrams, you improve latency because less is being transmitted. IP would travel over Ethernet as a medium (electrical signaling and packetization). The speed of Ethernet you chose will be based on what you are transmitting to determine the amount of bandwidth you need. You can do Ethernet all the way up to 10Gb/s now!
