What is 10GBASE-T? 10GBASE-T technology is one of the most commonly used technologies supporting 10Gbe Ethernet. It is a defined 10G Ethernet standard which uses twisted pair cables as transmission media, providing connections with the bandwidth of 10 Gbit/s and a maximum transmission distance up to 100 meters.
10GBASE-T provides a high-speed networking solution for horizontal copper applications and high-performance networking in the following areas:
- Local uplinks, aggregation links, and inter-switch links
- HPC (high-performance computing) data centers in new and existing installations
- Enterprise server farms/data centers with both new and legacy media
- Other applications that can use in-building structured cabling with both new and legacy media
