For the Twitter-curious, as well as ICT industry members who are active users of the platform, here's a rundown of some of my latest tweets and re-tweets, as recently seen posted to my feed @CablingTweets. Leading off is a link to a handy and illustrative new technology applications graph, made available for free download by our esteemed friends and colleagues at the NBase-T Alliance.

As succinctly stated by the industry group, "The NBASE-T Physical Layer Specification version 2.3, and the IEEE 802.3bz standard, specify operation of 2.5Gb/s and 5Gb/s Ethernet over Category 5e or Category 6 (or better) structured cabling, applying sophisticated signaling techniques to exceed the 1Gb/s rate for which this cabling was originally designed. In the vast majority of cases, the technology is designed to deliver multigigabit speeds without any special considerations from the user."-- Matt Vincent, Senior Editor, Cabling Installation & Maintenance

Did you know #NBASET tech is used in multiple applications and expanding each day? Hard to fit them all on one page, but check out the current list here
