    i was reading up on network technologys and found a computer terminology site, which by the way it is a very good site www.whatis.com and was reading about 10 GB ethernet.and i wondered how engineers would hook up a network using such cables. i did a google search tryin to find something about installation of ethernet but didnt really come up with anything satisfactory to what i was looking for.i would like either a step by step guide to installing something like this or even just a picture explaining such a process. cause when i was reading it was sayin how 4 cat 5 cables are used to achieve a 1 Gb banwith and i just couldnt figure out what type of devices they would use to hook something like this up.so if anyone could point me to a web site or if they have the time explain to me what they use to achieve something like this i would really appreciate it.take it easy ppl.

    I believe it will be the Cat 6 cabling spec that will handle this.

    Companys like Foundry are doing it with fiber. The IEEE has too many links to post individually, so I'll put them all together as one and let you have a look for yourself. Of course, Cisco has gotten into the game as well. here is a press release about an Aussie telco going 10 gb on the backbone with the Cisco 12000 series hardware.
