Netgear ProSAFE XS728T 24-Port 10GbE Ethernet Switch

Companies in need of 10 GbE networking speeds usually prefer fiber optic cables. However, an increasing number of 10 GbE switches compatible with plain copper cables have surfaced within the last few years. With such switches in place, companies with a copper infrastructure could forgo putting forth the rather large sum it takes to change to a fiber-optic infrastructure as they could now use copper cables that are compatible with 10 GbE speeds (Cat6 for 30-50m and Cat6a or Cat7 for up to 100m) instead. We should note here that while copper-cable standards are starting to meet the speeds fiber optic standards deliver, their latencies are significantly higher. So if you need to keep latencies as low as possible, you'll have no other choice but to work with fiber optic cables. Large companies usually use a combination of a fiber and copper infrastructure, especially since fiber optic cables can be much longer than copper ones at 10 GbE speeds. Compared to SPF+ compatible networking cards, the cost of 10GBase-T networking cards has lately also increased. @ techPowerUp
