New Intel white paper added to Siemon data centre e-book:

"10GBASE-T for broad 10Gigabit adoption in the data centre"

Siemon, a global leader in network infrastructure, has added a new Intel white paper to its data centre e-book. Entitled '10GBASE-T for broad 10Gigabit adoption in the data centre', the new white paper was written by Intel's Carl G Hansen with contributions from Siemon's noted data centre expert, Carrie Higbie. Covering key 10 Gigabit Ethernet drivers, current need and future adoption expectations, Intel's paper lays out 10Gb/s cabling media and architecture options, including a comparative look at backwards compatibility, power consumption, latency and cost.

The new Intel content is incorporated into Siemon's comprehensive and educational 71 page data centre e-book, entitled 'Deploying, managing and securing an efficient physical infrastructure'. Developed in light of recent advances in data centre hosting options and high-speed infrastructure, the e-book provides an in-depth overview, designed to guide IT network professionals through critical data centre decisions. Infrastructure-related topics include actionable strategies, considerations and recommendations on cloud and co-location facilities, cooling best practices, point-to-point versus structured cabling, physical layer intelligence and more.

Topics in the data centre e-book now include:

  • Intel's '10GBASE-T for broad 10Gigabit adoption in the data centre'
  • Strategies and considerations for cloud and co-location data centres facility owners and hosting providers
  • Strategies and considerations for cloud and co-location data centre tenants
  • Point-to-point versus structured cabling
  • Data centre cooling best practices
  • Intelligence at the physical layer
  • Benefits of screened and shielded cabling

Commenting on the update to the e-book, marketing manager, Graeme Stoker said, "This digital publication has proven to be extremely popular and is valued by all those working in data centre environments. With the addition of Intel's new white paper, the book is essential reading and contains the very latest insight regarding 10 Gigabit Ethernet from leading industry experts. With thoughts and theories backed up by significant detail and technical data, this is a key reference text for data centre professionals".
