Why do we need 10GBASE-T copper transceivers?

10GBASE-T, or IEEE 802.3an-2006, is a standard released in 2006 to provide 10Gbit/s connections over unshielded or shielded twisted pair cables, with distances up to 30 meters (98 ft) with RJ45 connectors on an electrical transceiver (or copper transceiver). It’s backward-compatible with existing 1GbE (1 Gigabit Ethernet) networks, meaning that it can...
