The IT environment depends on hyperscale data centers and virtualized servers, making it crucial that upgrading to the latest technology be viewed from a comprehensive systems viewpoint. Need more data center performance? Maximize investment by upgrading the CPU, network and storage.

Due to the rapid growth of ever-more powerful mobile devices, enterprise networks need to keep pace. NBASE-T™ technology boosts the speed of twisted pair copper cabling up to 100 meters in length well beyond the designed limits of 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps). Capable of reaching 2.5 and 5 Gbps over 100m of Cat 5e cable, NBASE-T solutions implement a new type of signaling over twisted-pair cabling. The upcoming Intel(R)  Ethernet Controller code named Sageville, a single chip dual-port 10GBASE-T  and NBASE-T controller, can auto-negotiate to allow the selection of the best speed: 100 Megabit Ethernet (100MbE), 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 2.5GbE and 5GbE, over Cat 5e or Cat 6 and 10GbE over Cat 6A or Cat 7. Watch our recent demo from Cisco Live.

 

 

 

At Interop Las Vegas in April 2015, Intel took part in the NBASE-T Alliance public multi-vendor interoperability demonstration. Carl Wilson, Product Marketing Engineer, walks through the demo to show how it leveraged Intel's next generation single-chip 10GBASE-T controller supporting the NBASE-T intermediate speeds of 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps.

 

The demonstration showed NBASE-T™ technology deployed in the three key components of an enterprise network: wireless access points, switches and client devices. Specific products on display included NBASE-T technology-enabled wiring closet/campus LAN switches, 802.11ac Wave 2 Wireless LAN Access Points (WLAN APs), Network Interface Controller (NIC) in Personal Computer (PC), Network-Attached Storage (NAS), Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), network and embedded processors and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) chipsets. Connectivity between these products were based on a wide range of cabling configurations including Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat6A, with lengths extending up to 100m. For more information, check out the NBASE-T Alliance press release.
