Technical paper: Reconsidering physical topologies with 10GBase-T

June 28, 2013
New technical paper from Broadcom.

A new technical white paper from Broadcom illustrates how 10GBase-T and twisted-pair cabling can dramatically lower the capex of interconnect in the data center. The paper highlights the ways in which data center interconnect includes both the connection between the Top-of-Rack switch (ToR) and the server, and the connection between the ToR and the spine switch.

The analysis shows how 10GBase-T lowers costs by replacing expensive SFP+ DAC cabling with affordable UTP cabling, and by enabling architects to optimize physical topologies.
