Connect to NBASE-T equipmentThe network card supports advanced NBASE-T technology, compatible
with the latest multi-gigabit Ethernet switches and routers, such as new
Cisco campus switches (including Catalyst 4500E, 3850 and 3560-CX). The
card enables you to connect to NBASE-T based equipment at network
speeds of 2.5Gbps or 5Gbps, over your existing Cat5e infrastructure,
without having to upgrade to more expensive Cat6a.
NBASE-T technology accelerates the speed of twisted pair Cat5e copper
cabling over a distance of up to 100 meters. The Ethernet network card
also supports 10Gbps network speeds if using Cat6a cabling, and 1Gbps
network speeds if using Cat5e (or better) cabling.
