BEAVERTON, OR– April 24, 2018 – The NBASE-T Alliance , an industry-wide cooperative effort focused on enabling the development and deployment of products that support 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T Ethernet, today announced that five member companies will demonstrate products featuring 2.5G and 5G Ethernet speeds in a variety of applications at the alliance’s Interop ITX Booth #201.  In addition, the alliance chair will lead a presentation in the Theater session discussing NBASE-T solutions and success stories.

Interop ITX takes place April 30 - May 4, 2018, at the Mirage in Las Vegas, NV and the NBASE-T Alliance is a gold sponsor of the conference.

“This past year has seen the explosive growth of NBASE-T technology, with vendors announcing and shipping products in applications including enterprise, consumer, industrial and service provider, all designed to help users easily move beyond 1 Gbps Ethernet using their existing cabling,” said Peter Jones, NBASE-T Alliance Chairman. “With Cat5e and Cat6 still representing 90 percent of the installed base of cabling, NBASE-T technology provides a real world, immediate, successful solution that saves time, money and stress.”

The NBASE-T Alliance Interop ITX demonstration highlights the extensive reach and uses of the NBASE-T technology with features including downshifting, Power over Ethernet (802.3bt), Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), HD video streaming, high performance gaming, network storage and 802.11ac - all over typical cable infrastructure. Member companies participating in the live demonstration include AEM, Aquantia, Cisco, Panduit, and The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) showing NBASE-T related field testers, NICs, work stations,  switches, client PCs, test equipment, reference designs, wireless access points and more.
