Demand of 10G Ethernet Based on Copper Cabling System
The birth of the latest UTP copper cabling solution is backed by the new technology of 10G Ethernet. Can it really achieve 10Gbps transmission performance on the traditional copper cable? You may think that such a high-speed network can only be realized in high-end single-mode fiber and multimode fiber systems. However, a group of leading cabling system manufacturers has worked hard with the IEEE 802.3an working group to demonstrate the technical feasibility of realizing 10GBASE-T transmission performance in a copper cabling system. Based on the analysis of the preliminary test results of the new structured cabling design and the prediction of the development of semiconductor chip technology, the working group concluded that 10G Ethernet based on copper cabling systems can become a reality.
This emerging technology requires semiconductor chip manufacturers and generic cabling system manufacturers to establish a close cooperative relationship. On the one hand, it is necessary to develop new semiconductor chips that can support new linear coding combinations to further suppress the internal cable noise in the process of using digital signal processing technology. On the other hand, copper cables and connectors that can support high-frequency transmission need to be designed to increase the channel bandwidth. The final combination of these advanced technologies provides an economic cabling media for major enterprises to meet their expanding network application needs.
What Drives 10GBASE-T
Although the development of the 10GBASE-T cabling system is exciting from a technical point of view, people may still wonder: most workstations now run on the 100Base-T cabling system or 1000Base-T cabling system. So where is the use of this new cabling solution? The existing network infrastructure is being transformed and upgraded to improve the production efficiency of enterprises, meet the growing storage requirements, support the integration of various applications and provide perfect protection measures for important business information. It is predicted that data centers, high-end workstations, and network applications will become important users of this emerging technology.
To support 10G Ethernet application, UTP cable must ensure that the insulation layer and conductor layer are highly concentric, and the diameter of its copper conductor is larger than that of the previous generation UTP cable, so as to enhance the channel strength of the whole channel.
In order to ensure that the cabling system operates efficiently and has enough bandwidth to meet the needs of future growth, multimode fiber channels are used in many applications today. With the launch of the 10GBASE-T copper cabling system, end users will have more choices when laying generic cabling systems in the data center.
In order to improve business throughput and enhance customer service, software engineers are constantly committed to the development of new high bandwidth-consuming computer applications. The current applications include TV medical treatment, real-time network, video, audio broadcasting, digital video conference and video streaming. At the same time, the size and complexity of data files transmitted by high-end workstations are also increasing rapidly. The transmission of medical image files, the application of 3D professional model technology and the deployment of professional media playback tools have overwhelmed some enterprise networks. But one thing is certain with the rapid development of emerging network technology, the data transmission speed of the whole enterprise network will increase day by day. The new 10GBASE-T copper cabling system can provide end-users with an economical cabling medium that can meet the needs of high bandwidth consumption applications now and in the future. Data center and storage area networks have extremely high requirements for infrastructure bandwidth and throughput, and they will become the first adopters of the 10GBASE-T standard.
Ethernet is the most widely used LAN communication structure. The new semiconductor chip and the new end-to-end generic cabling system jointly bring a new network technology – 10G Ethernet based on copper cable. This emerging technology can quickly provide users with economical cabling media that can meet the current and future ultra-high bandwidth needs.
