competitive world and especially given the current financial climate, the
“need for speed” and hunger for increased bandwidth, both in the backbone
and more recently to the desktop, has seen the meteoric uptake in the higher
end cabling systems.
with the more familiar and mundane Category 5e/Class D and Category6/Class F
links and the obvious limitations they attract, the industry as a whole, is
experiencing the new exciting dawn of the 10G cabling systems, with
Category6A/Class E, Category 7/Class F and even Category 7A/Class
FA becoming more common, as companies, looking to implement a new
cabling system, are wanting to capitalise on a greater return on investment
from their cabling infrastructure.
organisations, when considering new cabling systems, are now looking to take
the leap from Category 5e to either Category 6A or Category 7 and view the
step from Cat5e to 6 as one that provides very little by way of an
advantage, especially when they consider what their competitors may be
considering for implementation.
It is our
belief that this forward thinking and those early adopters, of these new
cabling systems, will reap the benefit for years to come, whilst those who
decide to install Category 6 may have to re-cable again in quick succession
to play catch-up with their competitors.
work within the IT cabling industry recognise the advantages that these new
cabling systems bring; however, if we are to be totally honest and truthful
and provide our partners with continued unbiased advice, they are not
conducive to every environment.
