Network speed levels “established at 10Gb/s as today standard – are about to take the next quantum leap. IEEE 802.3 started already in July 2012 a standardization project for Next Generation Base-T, resulting in a clear roadmap for a twisted pair data cable to support 40Gb/s transmission over 30m link distance.
Within the published standard ISO/IEC TR 11801-99-1 are the new standards with the classes I (Cat8.1) and II (Cat8.2) in development. Class I (Cat8.1) is offset by the standard TIA-568-C.2-1 draft 3 with the Cat.8.
ISO/IEC and ANSI TIA have extended frequency range up to 2GHz. Both standards specify significantly higher Alien-Crosstalk requirements; Class II (Cat8.2) compared to Class EA and FA and Class I (cat8.1) compared to Class EA.
