10 Things to Know Before Deploying 10 Gigabit Ethernet
The IEEE standard for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), IEEE Standard 802.3ae- 2002, was ratified eight years ago. Almost immediately, large enterprises started confidently deploying 10GbE in their corporate backbones, data centers, and server farms to support high-bandwidth, mission-critical applications.
Over the years, improvements in 10GbE technology, price, and performance have extended its reach beyond enterprise data centers to midmarket networks. Increasing bandwidth requirements and the growth of enterprise applications are also driving broader deployments of 10 Gigabit Ethernet. This white paper presents a list of 10 important things for achieving a reliable, affordable, and simple 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployment.
