What is 10GBASE-T and Why Is This Technology So Important?

What is 10GBASE-T and Why Is This Technology So Important?

10GBASE-T is a type of Ethernet signaling providing speeds over twisted-pair cabling that go beyond 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) for distances up to 100 meters.

This IEEE 802.3an® standard can reach 2.5 and 5 Gbps over Cat5e and Cat6 cabling.  Depending upon the network infrastructure, signals can potentially reach new speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The recent

Advantage of Power Over Ethernet (PoE)

What Is The Main Advantage of Power Over Ethernet (PoE)?

The main advantage of Power over Ethernet (PoE) is delivery of data AND power over one Cat5e/Cat6 Ethernet cable. PoE ends the need for AC/DC power supplies and outlets. A remote installation costs less than fiber as no electrician is required. Ethernet cable costs less and is often already installed buildings.

This article will explain the many advantages PoE has to offer. What began as an effort

IEEE 802.3cg | Pushing Ethernet Technology Into the Future

Ethernet engineers have complicated work. Upgrading equipment, meeting budgets and deadlines, and ensuring maximum uptime all land in their wheelhouse.

But if you could summarize the primary problem (and solution) in one word, it would be speed.

There’s no question that since 1985, there’s been a lot of progress made when it comes to network speed. This year, 400GB ethernet is

The Cable War: Copper vs Fiber

The Cable War: Copper vs. Fiber

WiFi is excellent. We all love it. But underneath any good wireless network, lies some serious cabling.

The question is, which will be better for any given scenario? Fiber or copper?

Ethernet has certainly been in the news lately. From applications of LED lighting to advanced IP camera technology, there are no shortage of applications for ethernet cabling.

Copper cabling such as Ethernet, is the cheaper
