Hear multiple stories of companies successfully deploying NBASE- T technology to leverage cabling assets and support increased speeds of 2.5Gb/s and 5Gb/s today.

It’s no secret we are growing past 1000BASE-T Ethernet in a number of applications. But, given the 70 billion meters installed base of Cat 5e/6 cables, we had to find a way to leverage that asset. NBASE-T and IEEE 802.3bz 2016 are the answer, supporting speeds of 2.5Gb/s and 5Gb/s on this already existing cabling. And this technology is being deployed TODAY, solving real network issues, extracting more value from installed cabling, and future proofing network switch deployments for another 5-10 years of traffic increase. This presentation will:

  • Provide a basic overview of the technology capabilities and benefits
  • Discuss the ways NBASE-T is being designed into networks today and how it is being deployed
  • Showcase the large number of applications NBASE-T enables and futures areas where it is expected
  • Include case study examples of NBASE-T technology uses and ease of deployment
