• What is the likelihood that Category 6 will be passed over for fiber or Category 7 solutions?

  • For this to occur, there must be a dramatic reduction in the cost of Fiber-only Network Interface Cards and Fiber-only routers. Until these cost reductions occur, copper solutions will enjoy a cost-of-ownership advantage over fiber systems. The possibility for Category 7, is a dramatic increase in the demand for bandwidth by applications. The demand would have to be sufficient to overcome the cost-of-ownership issue in the near term.
