Ethernet Alliance Briefing on Structured Cabling – Analyst Hour

IEEE is developing 4 speeds for BASE-T connectivity, so I have been looking for an analyst with good data on structured cabling.  I am glad to announce that I have found an analyst with lots of great data on structured cabling deployments and switch topologies.  Please join the fifth “Analyst Hour” webinar on Tuesday, February 10th at 9am Pacific to hear Lone Hansen, Research Manager of BSRIA, present “Ethernet Alliance Briefing on Structured Cabling.”

During this webinar, you will hear more about:

  •  How 75% of structured cabling is copper based
  •  How 78% of twisted pair cabling (CAT cabling) is unshielded twisted pair (UTP)
  • Why Europe consumes about 90% of shielded twisted pair (STP) cabling
  • How only 1% of twisted pair cabling is CAT7 or higher
  • How OM3 is the dominant type of multi-mode fiber being deployed
  • Fascinating results from a cabling survey of 153 data centers in late 2014
  • How ToR switch topology are the most widely deployed while centralized switching and their long links are the second most common
