EXCEL Whitepaper: 2.5 and 5gb a step too far?

In the last few weeks we have seen a major announcement
coming out from the IEEE, followed by the supporting
marketing hype from certain switch technology vendors,
making several very bold claims which border on the

Back in 2013 the IEEE set up a task force under the designation
of NGBase-T which set out to investigate getting higher and
