25G high speed in copper

Intelligent system solution for high-performance, future-oriented structured cabling
The need for high data transfer rates is growing enormously. On 12 September 2017, the data traffic rate in Frankfurt reached a new record high of 5.88 Terabits per second. Mid-December 2017, just under 6.15 terabits per second was achieved. Five years ago, it was not even 2 terabits per second.

Long-term, intelligent, structured cabling for diverse uses now play a fundamental role alongside elementary home and building automation systems by helping owners to minimize installation and maintenance costs and as such assure their investments for years to come.

Maximum compatibility for the efficient use
METZ CONNECT’s 25G system is consistent and compatible – an essential condition for the transparent, efficient and individual use of future-oriented network and cabling systems. You can now create tomorrow’s network infrastructure today as the minimal additional cost will give you 150% more performance.

System components
The 25 GBit high-speed data transmission demands all components’ performance. This METZ CONNECT product range includes the appropriate installation and patch cables to offer you a complete and consistent solution, from server to terminal device.
