ALSO CALLED: Ethernet, 100BASE-T, 10BASE-T, IEEE 802.3, 10/100 Base-T, 10BASE-2, 802.3
DEFINITION: 1000BASE-T is Gigabit Ethernet (1 gigabit is 1000 megabits per second) on copper cables, using four pairs of Category 5 unshielded twisted pair to achieve the gigabit data rate. 1000BASE-T can be used in data centers for server switching, for uplinks from desktop computer switches, or directly to the desktop for broadband applications. A big advantage of 1000BASE-T is that existing copper cabling  …
