10GbE Install

Created: 05 January 2017

10Gb Ethernet allows for ultra-fast file transfer and, importantly for this install, real-time editing of 4k files over an Ethernet network.

Sticking with established RJ-45 connectors on this job was a requirement, as was testing and running a series of new Cat7 cables between the workstation and the server rack on another floor of the building.

 Equipment

Netgear's GS110mx provides an inexpensive solution for just this sort of job - a pair of 10GbE ports allows two computers to communicate at 10 Gigabit speeds and still connect to the legacy Gigabit machines on the larger network.
