IEEE 802.3bz | Breaking the 1 Gbps Barrier Without ReCabling

For almost a decade now, IT Teams have relied on the 1000BASE-T Ethernet standard over copper wires.  Using Category 5e and Category 6 cables, network admins are used to achieving data speeds of roughly 1 Gbps for single users.

While these throughput speeds have been adequate for a while, the increasing demand for speed has led to a new Ethernet Standard: IEEE 802.3bz.

The newly approved IEEE Standard
