Why 10GB Is The Standard Today In Data Cabling?


The usage of data networks has increased exponentially in the last five years or so. Companies small or large heavily rely on high-performance data network bandwidth and are increasingly migrating or upgrading themselves to Gigabit links. With gigabit connectivity widely available for gigabit-based PCs, servers, data centre storage and high-end computing, gigabit technology is emerging as the connection of choice for many organizations.

Due to the high usage of streaming services and video conferencing, gigabit and 10 Gb networks have become the standard today. 5 years back, 10GbE was neither necessary nor affordable but with the advancement in the area of network technologies and wide acceptance of fibre technologies, 10 Gigabit is considered a standard for small and large businesses. Many companies are seeking to “future-proof” their network to ensure they can support emerging technologies and preserve their initial investments.

Earlier fiber optic cabling used to be a very selective medium for data transfer. Because the fiber was a new technology back in 10 years, its adoption was slow and very expensive. Now almost every business looks to rely on fiber optic cabling to cater to the demand of high bandwidth usage.
