Beyond the Speed of Gigabit

Is a single Gigabit connection enough for daily use of a home network?
For a small office or big family where numerous devices
have to share a single connection, this may not be enough.

2.5G makes a difference

Nowadays, ISPs in many areas have started offering Multi-Gig internet access plans with competitive pricing. For such cases, the Multi-Gig connection becomes an ideal choice for unleashing the fullest potential of your internet performance. High demanding applications such as AR, VR gaming, 4K and 8K streaming became more popular than ever.

Faster-than-Gigabit wired connections are surely needed now to match the speeds and if the cost isn’t much to upgrade, why not?

2.5G connection could be just the answer.

What is 2.5G connection?

2.5G connection, just as the name suggests, refers to a link that delivers connection speeds up to 2.5G. The new standard of 802.3bz, which is also called 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T, allows you to run 2.5G, 5G, and possibly 10G on your existing Cat5e and Cat6 cabling. It’s a huge win for businesses and home users, as it allows for a cost-saving alternative to re-wiring with Cat6a for a faster network. Meanwhile, the Multi-Gig port can automatically negotiate to operate at various speeds (10 Mbps / 100 Mbps / 1 Gbps / 2.5 Gbps / 5 Gbps / 10 Gbps). This enables your devices to operate at full speed with flexibility. For example, a 2.5G Multi-Gig port can support all of the following connection speeds: 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, and 2.5 Gbps.
