This is the base page of the section of 10Gbps/10GbE.

The content you are looking for can be found via the navigation to your left ←. some of these folder index pages have content, but most like this one don't.

there is an error in the netgear whitepaper for copper cable length for 100m, it calls it 98ft. this is incorrect, 100m=328ft.

cat6 (30m/98'), cat6a (100m/328'), cat7 (100m/328') are all copper cabling which can be used for 10GbE over IEEE 802.3an-2006.

interestingly enough, 802.11ad routers (7Gbps wifi) probably will be a best-fit for this if you want maximum bandwidth in your LAN to match your wifi traffic. who knows, maybe ISP speeds will catch up to 10GbE someday. even backhaul just barely goes over the line.
