Today’s Category 6A (CAT 6A) systems are impacted by an increasing amount of noise.  The typical environment for a data center is characterized by multiple Ethernet protocols running over a significant volume of different cable designs, performance levels, and manufacturers’ brands. All of these elements provide a very noisy environment for 10GBASE-T systems.

This white paper explains that the overall noise level for CAT 6A channels can only be improved by adding additional immunity to AXT in the system.
