Why Read This Report
Ten gigabit per second Ethernet (10 GbE) represents the next level of enterprise network bandwidth, with vendors hyping it as the next great capability. But as an IT infrastructure and operations professional, you must strike a balance between constant operational improvement and sound financial decision-making. So far, 10 GbE has been a high-end luxury for firms that want maximum performance regardless of cost, but that's changing fast. The per-port pricing gap between 10 GbE and alternate network options is narrowing rapidly as more vendors increase the competitive pressure on pricing for related components. So where will this technology truly matter, and when? This report looks at the impact of 10 GbE on infrastructure applications and provides guidance for the most effective transformation of your network.
