Panduit Corp. has announced its participation in what it called the first public demonstration of 10GBASE-T multi-vendor interoperability this week at Interop Las Vegas.
Sponsored by the Ethernet Alliance, it was designed to showcase an ecosystem of 10GBASE-T cabling and active equipment from multiple vendors.
Panduit said in a statement the success of the demo indicates that 10GBASE-T technologies are ready for implementation in data centres and enterprise networks as a viable, interoperable 10 Gb/s solution.
For the demonstration, Panduits TX6 10GIG Category 6A UTP and STP cabling and connectivity was deployed in 100-metre, 4-connector channels bundled in a worst-case 6-around-1 configuration.
The 10 Gb/s throughput was achieved over each channel, connecting a variety of high-density servers, switches and storage equipment integrated with the latest 10GBASE-T silicon products.
