The article reports that engineers at Pennsylvania State University in the U.S. are attempting to achieve data speeds of 100 gigabits per second over Cat 7 copper cables. Ali Enteshari, graduate student in electrical engineering and part of the research team, said a rate of 100gbps over 70 metres is possible, and they are working on extending that to 100 metres. Using information on specifications and characteristics of the cables, the researchers modelled the cable with all its attributes, including modelling crosstalk.
