When migrating a network from 100 Mbps to 1 Gigabit Ethernet, there is a good chance that many of the existing twisted pair cabling runs already support the higher demands of 1000BASE-T.

Attend this free, interactive Webinar and you will learn:
  • Main reasons and motivations for moving to Gigabit Ethernet
  • Pros and cons of running the full suite of ANSI/EIA/TIA-568-B Annex D tests
  • Pros and cons of Ethernet Speed Certification
  • Step-by-step upgrade process to verify capacity of existing pairs for GigE, including:
    - Documenting the floor layout and test plan
    - Checking continuity on all pairs
    - Testing for delay and noise thresholds
    - Measuring bit errors on each circuit
    - Verification of IP connectivity with active equipment
    - Complete documentation to support migration plan
