Standards Update – Next Generation Base-T

On July 16, 2012 the IEEE (Institute Electrical and Electronics Engineers) 802.3 approved the formation of a study group to develop objectives for the Next Generation Base-T (NGBase-T) application over balanced twisted pair cabling. The intent of the study group is to explore technical feasibility and market potential for speeds higher than 10Gb/sec over twisted pair cabling. Copper based twisted pair cabling continues to be the most popular media used for Ethernet networks.

This article highlights considerations that led to the decision to approve the IEEE study group for NGBase-T.
