10GBASE-T is the standard technology that enables 10- Gigabit Ethernet operations over balanced twisted-pair copper, including Category 6A unshielded and shielded cabling. It provides flexibility in data center network design due to its 100-meter reach capability, and the requisite backward compatibility that allows most end users to upgrade from their 10/100/1000-Mbps networks. The ecosystem currently in place has the adoption of 10GBASE-T poised to surge.
This white paper from Commscope explains that the economic and technical barriers to end-user adoption of 10GBASE-T have been overcome, and 10GBASE-T is moving toward massive deployment. It discusses the performance increases offered by 10GBASE-T and how it helps to enable new use models, including unified networking and virtualization. Next, it points out the declining costs of 10GBASE-T and its role in making 10GBASE-T desirable for broad adoption. Lastly, it concludes that 10GBASE-T provides end users with backward compatibility with existing networks and flexibility in network designs.
