medium dependent interface (LAN) (MDI)

The Physical Media Attachment(PMA) and the Medium Dependent Interface (MDI) together form the actual transceiver( MAU) in the 802.3 standard.

The Medium Dependent Interface is the physical interface to the transmission medium. It is used to feed the electrical and optical signals into the transmission medium, into TP cables or optical fibers. The Medium Dependent Interface (MDI) is structured differently for the different Ethernet variants. The Medium Dependent Interface also forms the interface between the transmission medium and the Powered Device( PD) or the Power Sourcing Equipment( PSE).
