And here I am thinking that 100MB/s is adequate.
Sweet! Bring on the 1Tbps. And to think I used to drool over a T1 connection, lol.
10Gbps is basically pretty much fiber only, so i assume this is also in that boat.
Nice top end 1Tbps! Wifi is great for some things, but on my desktop I use wired and by choice whenever I can get it. Wifi is cool don't get me wrong but wired Ethernet connection is way more capable as well as much faster than WIFI will ever be,
100MBPS is most likely fine for most home users unless they're running a complex, potentially daisy-chained network.
This new standard is being put into place for corporations that offer a service, so they won't bottleneck when trying to dish out bandwidth or network resources to its users.
As an IT tech who has to maintain and troubleshoot both wired and wireless networks, I can tell you that I spend at least 10x the time troubleshooting wifi compared to wired. Let me think... We had a problem with a wired client in February. One problem. It turned out to be a software conflict. We have thirteen wireless clients total, and yet there is a problem with at least one of them every 48 hours.
So, if you are paying to maintain the network, my advice is "go wired." Initial installation will probably cost more, but the money you''ll save on downtime and troubleshooting will pay you back in a year or less.
Rtietjens has a great point, we have a full fiber-optic cable connection, some seriously heavy duty bandwidth at my house. However the Wifi is so poor that most times i can't have more then 2 friends over for LOL games or 2 or 3 Xbox's on Halo Reach.
Good to see further progress on the Ethernet front ! I'm with Rtietjens here - reliability is the most essential characteristic of any system, whether in the enterprise or at home....
Yeah but assuming I have a normal house we have 2 smart phones, 2 desktops, 1 laptop, and a Kindle fire generally always connected to our network when anyone is home and we are 2 adults and a 5 year old.
Think about if I had a teenager here 24/7 to that would be another computer and another smart phone then your starting to over whelm 1GB to an extent. leaves you .0125 mbps per device where 1Tbps would be.125 Gbps
