Gigabit Ethernet can be deployed using both copper wires and fiber optic cables. Since they target to achieve data rates of 1 gigabit per second (1 Gbps), they require encoding – decoding a bit within a nanosecond. This was achieved first in the 1000BASE-CX version.Cabling in Common Varieties of Gigabit ... Read More
