July 23, 2012 – IEEE has formed a new study group—802.3 Next-Generation Base-T—to measure industry interest and needs in the next generation of the IEEE 802.3 Base-T family of technologies for ethernet transmission over twisted-pair cabling.

“Because of the ability of current IEEE 802.3 Base-T technologies to interoperate with legacy versions via the standard’s ‘autonegotiation’ feature and, thereby, support cost-effective infrastructure upgrades, extension to 40 Gigabit ethernet and higher speeds will be required in coming years,” said Bill Woodruff, chair of the IEEE 802.3 Next-Generation Base-T Study Group.

Interested individuals are invited to contribute to the new IEEE 802.3 Next-Generation Base-T Study Group. CLICK HERE for more information.
