The IEEE 802.3-2002 is a gigabit Ethernet solution that supports 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) transmission rates over 4-pairs of category 5 UTP cable.* The 1000BASE-T implementation utilizes new technology and new signal encoding schemes in order to satisfy their high bit rate objectives. 1000BASE-T solutions will be backward compatible with 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T technologies.

*Gigabit Ethernet over copper is supported by the TIA and ISO worst case 100m channel topology and is expected to be supported by installed category 5 legacy cabling. Siemon recommends category 6 or 5e cabling for new installations.
