10GBASE-T Ecosystem Is Ready for Broad Adoption

10GBASE-T wiring technology has been greatly beneficial to Ethernet operations, providing great flexibility in network design and requisite backward compatibility that allows most end users to transparently upgrade from 10/100/1000-Mbps networks. The ecosystem is now in place for 10GBASE-T to be widely adopted.  With a dramatically declining price and increasing demand, many analysis are predicting rapid growth of 10GBASE-T adoption over the next year.

This white paper from Commscope, Intel and Cisco concludes that concludes that economic and technical barriers to end-user adoption of 10GBASE-T have been overcome, and therefore 10GBASE-T is moving toward massive deployment.  Firstly, it discusses the technical benefits to utilizing 10GBASE-T wiring within your data center, and the ease with which it can be employed.  Next, power and cost advantages of adapting the technology are cited, as well as the possible decreases in latency.  Lastly, the paper outlines the availability of 10GBASE-T, as well as the proper application of the technology within the data center.

The current networking ecosystem encourages widespread adoption of 10GBASE-T wiring, a technology with great benefit to the user.  Click here to download this white paper on the ease and advantages involved in adopting 10GBASE-T wiring within your data center.
