Hi folks! So you may have noticed that in the network space that more and more 10 GbE options are becoming available! This is great as it’s pushed it’s way into all sorts of products such as switches, routers and firewalls.
However, I have had a lot of people ask me if they really need 10 GbE. Of course the answer usually is no unless they have heavy bandwidth needs. They don’t need 10 GbE, but they need more than 1 Gb, so you have no choice. Sure 10 GbE is a big jump, but there really is no in between option.
So as newer devices come out and you need to replace old withering ones, consider 10 GbE, it’s becoming much more affordable!
