As data usage has continued to escalate with the increasingly widespread trend of larger files, cloud computing, virtualization and streaming media, it has been easy to see the impact upon data centers. Supporting today's bandwidth intensive applications has required already established data centers to upgrade and new data centers to plan on future-proofing today's construction with higher densities and transmission rates. These increases in data rates have impacted not only how networks and cabling infrastructure are deployed, but also how they are designed. As a result of this transformation, 10GBASE-T has experienced strong growth in deployments and expansions as data centers and enterprises across the world are embracing this new infrastructure.
