Multigigabit Ethernet

Multigigabit Ethernet is a technology that leverages existing bandwidth at each access point of a network. More specifically, the term refers to port capability of connecting to devices with throughputs greater than 1 Gigabit Ethernet.

Multigigabit Ethernet opens up possibilities for Wi-Fi 6E. By using existing cabling in compliance with IEEE 802.3 standards (CAT5e and CAT6 twisted pair wiring), multigigabit Ethernet avoids unnecessary infrastructure costs.

Testing multigigabit speeds properly on site is essential in avoiding repeat truck rolls. Follow this link to learn how to validate bandwidth speeds up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet and test residential WiFi 6E for optimal quality of experience.
