With 802.3bz, Old Cables Learn New Tricks

Cover

The new IEEE Ethernet standard offers some much-needed flexibility for network managers trying to keep up with skyrocketing bandwidth demand while working under long refresh cycles that prevent frequent rip-and-replace upgrades.

With 802.3bz, or NBASE-T, switches, network managers can give their existing CAT5e and CAT6 cables a shot in the proverbial arm, raising bandwidth from 1 Gbps to 2.5 or 5 Gbps.

This edition of Network Evolution examines these and other use cases for the new IEEE Ethernet standard, with on-the-ground stories from early adopters and the factors preventing some network managers from embracing NBASE-T quite yet.

Also in this issue, we explore:

  • Why an APM tool is essential
  • The increasing popularity of managed services to help enterprises focus on the core business
  • The connected stadium, where your network is the MVP
  • And more
