Summary:

This webinar will outline the business case for 10GBASE-T and its advantages. It will also note where other interfaces are a better choice for certain applications. With every transition, optical is always the first version of the next generation speed, so we’ll look at it and other interfaces such as SR, LR and SFP+ Direct Attach, as there will be cases where these are a better option.

10 gigabit Ethernet has been around since the early 2000s, but adoption has not been as widespread as many expected. Many organizations don’t think they need the bandwidth, costs have been high, and parts haven’t been available for broad deployment of 10 GigE. But with lower costs for adapters and switches, increasing network consolidation to reduce complexity, applications such as virtualization and big data optimized to take advantage of greater bandwidth and more powerful servers, deployment is increasing and the market is poised to accelerate in 2014.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Historical context for 10 GBase-T
  • Dispelling the myths
  • Advantages and limitations
  • Other options
  • Beyond 10GigE: What’s next?

Our speakers include:

  • Greg Ferro, analyst, Gigaom Research
  • Tom Kovanic, Solutions marketing manager, Panduit
  • J Metz, Sr., product manager, Cisco
  • Carl Hansen, product manager, Intel
