aaronhilley Thanks for the link Stew
ghostinthenet High-end APs are one application, but there are power users who need more than 1Gb and but can’t justify new cable infrastructure for 10x that.
ghostinthenet 10Gb isn’t strategic, but it may be a needed tactical technology.
ghostinthenet Er… 2.6Gb/5Gb isn’t strategic. Not 10Gb. Can’t type.
amyengineer Most memorable or favorite episode of TechWise?
@gallifreyan lack of planning is probably the most pervasive and broadly-implemented standard. 🙂
