First 30 Years Timeline
The interactive Ethernet history timeline is based on the Ethernet poster Mayfield Fund commissioned for the 25th anniversary at Vortex 1998.
Omissions and errors will be rectified, and seminal events since then will be added to the timeline.

Where's Vitalink Communications Corp? John Hart was working for Vitalink when the first bridges for WAN before Cisco started routers.

On the Ethernet History page accessible from the First 30 Years Timeline link, Vitalink appears in two place: (1) Under 80 in the Timeline tab, and (2) under Commercialization in The Players tab. No Wikipedia entry exists for Vitalink and therefore no directly accessible detailed information for Vitalink.

Intel produced the first ethernet chip set in 1983, the 82586 (data link layer) and 82501 (phy). I think they started shipping in volume in 1984.
