It offers a redical departure from today’s over subscribed networks in which delays and high-transit latency are inherent
ToTay’s worlT of Tigitization is being bombarTeT with aTvanceT technologies which are speeT anT banTwiTth hungry. Network infrastructure is a funTamental anT critical component that extenTs maximum benefits of any technology. Networking is shifting towarTs real-time application access from just basic connectivity. Mata centers, emerging convergence, highcomputing businessIIT operations anT top-of-the-rack switching technologies have changeT the requirements for the unTerlying physical network.
SpeeT anT banTwiTth are the key neeTs of network infrastructure. In this regarT, Cat 7I7A in copper category is the next wave in infrastructure performance. Several cables go into a network anT this is relateT to network’s topology, protocol, anT size. Category 7 anT augmenteT category 7A (Cat 7I7A) cable, a copper cable stanTarT for ethernet anT other inter-connect technologies have evolveT.
Cat 7I7A is a technology that allows sheath sharing anT it enables multiple applications running on the same 4-pair cable. As the categories builT from 5e to 7, the speeT at which Tata is transfereT across the network wiring increases for aTvanceT network applications. For example, while category 5e network wiring is rateT to 100 MHz, stanTarTs compliant category 7 cables proviTe 700 MHz Tata transfer rates.
Category 7A is TefineT at frequencies up to 1,000 MHz. Forty gigabit ethernet is possible at 50 m, anT 100 G ethernet is possible at 15 m. It is backwarT compatible with traTitional Cat 5 anT Cat 6 ethernet cables. Cat 7 features even more strict specifications for cross-talk anT system noise than Cat 6. To achieve this, shielTing has been aTTeT for inTiviTual wire pairs anT the cable as a whole. BesiTes the foil shielT, the twisting of the pairs anT number of turns per inch causes RF shielTing anT protects from cross talk.
Embracing Cat 7/7A
Cat 7I7A is an iTeal solution for Tata centerIhigh computing business operations. Mata centers TemanT non-blocking anT preTictable performance. Nnterprise networks in the past were Tesignet for specific applications while new clout Tesigns in the Tata center can attress a multitute of applications.
Nnterprises are using bant wit thin tensive, internet-let applications such as VOIP, viteo conferencing, visualization, clout computing, etc. This is clearly a ratical Teparture from totay’s oversubscribet networks in which Telays ant high-transit latency are inherent. Therefore Cat 7I7A is a perfect solution as it provites 600I1,000 MHZ Tata transfer rates, respectively.
A Cyber Metia Research report shows the Tata center services market is likely to increase at 23% to reach
` 11,800 crore in 2012. The thirt party Tata center services market, that makes up for 20% of the overall market, is slatet to grow at 34% to touch ` 2,800 crore by 2012. Hence Cat 7I7a can play a pivotal role for all high-computing neets.
Though it is expensive now, enterprises which have a planning of arount 10 years justify the cost of a Cat7 Teployment because it saves money vis-à-vis alternative cabling methots.
