    News - New Ethernet standard aims for 1Tbps wired connections by 2015

    That’s transfer speeds of up to 2.5 full-length Blu-ray movies in a second.

    Re: News - New Ethernet standard aims for 1Tbps wired connections by 2015

    However for home users current wired Ethernet standards are probably more than adequate, most people get by with wireless and homeplug home networking as laying Ethernet cables round homes can be an inconvenience not really tolerable by non-geeky folk.
    Hmm, that's the problem I've got - I'd love to be able to wire up the house, but even though kits to do that are readily available (Maplin, B&Q and Homebase locally), I shudder to think of the reaction I'd get from 'er indoors if I started drilling holes in walls/ceilings/floors.

    I had cause to go look at a couple of new estates being vomited up locally, and I'm still surprised that even "executive" (their description, not mine) builds don't include some network provision when the house is being built.
    Also most home users are more restricted by their comparatively low speed broadband connections than their home networking speeds.
    I was speaking to someone in the local Curry's and he was saying that I'd be surprised how many NAS boxes they sell - from what he saw mainly to serve the "smart tv's" that seem to be in fashion with video/music content - but also for backups (he said Time Machine) to an extent.

    In which case the crappy state of UK broadband isn't going to be a clamp to putting in Gigabit Ethernet for domestic use. Terabit Ethernet is still overkill I'd argue (apart from the odd Hexus user I'm willing to bet).

    I'd not even be close to justifying this sort of transfer rate around the house, but I'd love to try.

Even an empty pipes linking downstairs/upstairs with pull-cords (so you can drag your desired cable through) set into walls would facitilate any kind of cabling you wanted at a later date without negotiating the stairs or drilling holes in the ceiling.

    Likely to be over fibre rather than copper so would be expensive to build a home network.

    Agree. It's not about just homes (except that its 2-3 years away still, plenty might change), connection speeds like that can be handy between office servers etc. It's an early rattle for now but it might change quickly enough. Heck, I dont even use 10GB/s or even 1GB/s at home. I use power-line with 200Mbps and that is plenty for me for now. Much better than any wireless and don't need to destroy all walls just to install the cable. Just plug and go.

    I spent a couple of very unhappy weekends with electricians' rods trying to feed cat5 cable past the dollops of mortar that the the plasterboard had been fixed to the walls with, but eventually got it all wired up via a switch in the loft. I really can't believe the developers haven't cottoned on to the extra they could charge for this these days!

    Yep likely to be cheaper for companies or telcos than trunking several physical links together if that sort of throughput is required.

    Ditto here - although I did use a long Cat5 for a couple of weeks (connecting router/modem to the switch supplying the "home office"). Then switched to Solwise, and latterly Devolo, PowerLine Ethernet's.

    So that's what I'm more interested in - the general availability of cool-running gigabit PLE's (or should that be PLG's?) preferably with pass through ports. A lot more relevant to me personally than terabit links. I had a look at the Belkin PlayHD boxes, but they're hot running and no pass through.

    Anyone else understand the jump of 10MB usage in 2008 to only fizzle out again by 2010...

    It's funny seeing people talk about it in an 'at home today' context. Even if they do get a 1tbps chip out by 2015, it'll still be a decade or more before it comes to consumer equipment. Hell the 10gbps standard was published 10 years ago and we still don't have it coming with consumer motherboards.

    Re: News - New Ethernet standard aims for 1Tbps wired connections by 2015

    I managed to connect upstairs and downstairs via a pipe chase used by the old "back boiler" that is no longer there. Took a bit of fiddling but well worth it. I'm using gigabit but its a bit overkill as my pipe from Virgin is only 120mb. However videos stream nicely around the house.

    ^ as I was saying.

    Seriously lads, this kind of thing is for google, amazon, etc., pouring insane quantities of data into server farms.

    The thing is, I wouldn't enjoy any practical benefit from most new technology. This does nothing to dampen my desire to play with it.

    Also, there are a fair few science fields that may benefit from something like this now but will definitely need it in years to come. Ever seen the data volumes generated from something like radioastronomy? I think this would be only a gesture in the general direction of what they're likely to need for the square kilometer array if/when it comes online.

    Its the future aidanjt, we can look forward to it hitting mainstream in many years... as soon as it is released to the pioneering world then we know to sit and wait , i personally cant wait to see 1Tb/s cables with 1tb/s broadband but that will probably come in along time .

    We can only hope haha

    Yeah that's my point though, no point saying 'well I don't have a use for it in my home', you wont get to play with it for 10 years anyway.

    As mentioned above, I'd like to see 10GigE cards drop significantly in price; even at home it's fairly easy to max GigE with a single user accessing a single-drive NAS, never mind a large RAID array and multiple users! Sure, you can use link aggregation, but 10GigE would still be nice soon!
