멀티기가비트 기술

일반 무선 기술

의미:

멀티기가비트 기술, 특히 IEEE 802.3bz 표준은 2016년에 2.5GBASE-T 및 5GBASE-T로 소개되었습니다. IEEE 802.3bz는 구리 연선을 사용한 Ethernet 표준으로 2.5Gbps 및 5Gbps 속도를 제공합니다.

관심을 가져야 하는 이유:

기가비트 연결은 빠른 속도와 낮은 지연 시간으로 노트북, 스마트폰 등의 장치에서 유용하게 사용되었습니다. 하지만 최신 세대의 AP는 1GbE 연결을 압도할 수 있어 유선 네트워크가 성능 병목이 될 수 있습니다. 1Gbps 이상에서 작동하는 멀티기가비트 기술은 새로운 2.5 및 5Gbps 속도를 지원하면서도 흔히 구축된 Cat 5e(2.5Gbps용) 또는 Cat 6(5Gbps용) 케이블을 그대로 활용합니다. 따라서 가장 경제적이고 중단 없는 방식으로 WiFi 네트워크 성능을 극대화할 수 있습니다. Ruckus ICX Z 시리즈 스위치 및 Ruckus R720 액세스 포인트는 멀티기가비트 기술/802.3bz를 지원하여 WiFi 네트워크 성능을 극대화합니다.
