Cat 8: TIA performance standards committee chairman previews parameters of forthcoming twisted-pair cable standard for 40G
Category 8, the next-generation twisted-pair cabling specification, is still in development, but the outlook looks quite positive that it will be specified to 2GHz, four times today's bandwidth of 500MHz, promising a new copper speedway for data centers in the not-too-distant future.
The IEEE standards body is forming a committee to assess the future bandwidth needs of large organizations and service providers, with an eye toward next steps in Ethernet standards.
The Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers suffered a data breach last year that compromised credit card information of 828 people who registered for an IEEE conference.
The IEEE has finally approved the 802.11n high-throughput wireless LAN standard.
Wireless communication, once the domain of broadcasters and carriers, is now available everywhere we work, play, study, dine and drink coffee. These days wireless also seems to be equipped in every imaginable device, including toys made by the likes of Fisher Price. The technology can also be thanked for eliminating what was once the common eyesore of Ethernet cable carpets.
