Quiz : Category 8? Are We Kidding?
I checked my records, and it has been six and a half years since I last wrote a quiz about a proposal for a new performance category of unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cabling in Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) standards committees. Well, it’s time to do it again. There are proposals for another UTP category, Category 8. As of this writing, the committees are just getting started on what’s likely to be some lively discussions. Have you heard the news?
