2.5 Gbit Network Connectivity

The network capacity of a web server determines how fast your Internet sites shall open and how many people shall be able to visit them simultaneously. However, that isn't the only factor, but it's a very significant one. On one side, no matter how optimized a certain Internet site can be, bad connectivity means low loading speeds as well as service interruptions, particularly when only one Internet provider is used to access the hosting server. Alternatively, a superb connection with small capacity will enable only a small number of visitors to check out the site concurrently, while new visitors will have tough time loading any content. In this sense, the prosperity of your website depends not just on the content, but also on the site’s accessibility and loading speed. Both of these components are influenced by the connection which the hosting server uses. 

Comparison of twisted pair based Ethernet Technologies



  • Transfer speed = channels × bits per hertz × spectral bandwidth
  • On 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX one twisted pair of the cabling is used for transmission and another for reception, leaving two unused pairs. Highers speeds use all four pairs simultaneously for transmission (TX) and reception (RX).
  • Effective bits per hertz after loss to encoding overhead.
  • The spectral bandwidth is the maximum rate at which the signal will complete one hertz cycle. It is typical half the symbol rate, because one can send a symbol both at the positive and negative peak of the cycle. Exceptions are 10BASE-T where it is equal because it uses Manchester code, and 100BASE-TX where it is one quarter because it uses MLT-3 encoding.
  • At shorter cable length, it is possible to use cables of a lower grade than that is required for 100 m. For example it is possible to use 10GBASE-T on a Cat 6 cable of 55 m or less. Likewise 5GBASE-T is expected to work with Cat 5e in most use cases.


The intermediate speeds became relevant around 2014 as it became clear that it would not be possible to run 10GBASE-T over the Cat5e cable that had been used for the wiring in many buildings but that, with the development of fast WiFi protocols such as IEEE 802.11ac, there was a significant demand for cheap uplink faster than 1000BASE-T offered. IEEE 802.3bz will also support Power over Ethernet, which has generally not been available at 10GBASE-T.
As early as 2013 the Intel Avoton server processors integrated 2.5 Gbit/s Ethernet ports.
Whilst Broadcom had announced a series of 2.5 Gbit/s transceiver ICs,[10] 2.5 Gbit/s switch hardware was not widely commercially available at that point; 10GBASE-T switches do not generally support the intermediate speeds.
In October 2014 the NBASE-T Alliance was founded,[11] initially comprising Cisco, Aquantia, Freescale and Xilinx. By May 2015 [12] it had expanded to 34 members covering most producers of networking hardware.
The competing MGBASE-T Alliance, stating the same faster Gigabit Ethernet objectives, was founded in December 2014.[13] In contrast to NBASE-T, the MGBASE-T says that their specifications will be open source.[14]
With the forming of the IEEE 802.3bz draft standard under the patronage of the Ethernet Alliance in June 2015, the two NBASE-T and MGBASE-T Alliances are forced to collaborate.
