The article focuses on the use of 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GigE) over twisted-pair copper cabling (10GBASE-T). The standards for 10GBASE-T are still in the development stage. They are expected to be finalized and published in 2006. The 10GBASE-T test limits are similar to the limits for CAT 6. The difference is the frequency range and performance requirements for these tests are extended to support the higher data rates of the 10GigE technology. Moreover, alien crosstalk test parameters must be inclined with the field-certification effort for 10GigE.
