10GBASE-T deployment guide from Intel, Cisco, and Panduit
Modern data centers face a wide array of challenges that threaten the integrity of mission critical business
applications. These data centers are now stretched to capacity in terms of power, cooling, and floor space. Increasing
use of server consolidation, unified networking and virtualization technologies offer cost savings, improved
performance, and reliability, but are driving unprecedented demand for network I/O. While Gigabit Ethernet (GbE)
connections might be adequate to handle the bandwidth requirements of a single physical server, they do not have
adequate bandwidth for multiple virtual servers and multiple traffic types during peak periods. The practice of adding
additional GbE ports to servers can help with bandwidth, but the additional complexity, cost and administrative
overhead is not sustainable. In addition, load-balancing traffic among multiple GbE links might lead to asymmetric
usage of links contributing to system inefficiencies.
This is why today’s IT executives and network administrators look to 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) as the right solution
to meet their escalating I/O requirements and help simplify their networks. While there are several methods for
achieving a 10 GbE network, what is needed is a cost effective technology that allows broad deployment of 10 GbE to
every rack and tower in the data center and backward compatibility with existing equipment. This application note
examines 10GBASE-T, one of the most promising solutions for 10 GbE networks, and some of the new products for
