MGBASE-T Alliance Targets 2.5G and 5G

A new MGBASE-T Alliance has been formed to support the IEEE in its efforts to bring 2.5G and 5G Ethernet speeds to enterprise access points and other systems relying on unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cabling.


The Alliance is supporting a specification that leverages many of the fundamental technologies in Ethernet standards as defined in the IEEE 802.3 10GBASE-T, enabling faster time to market with minimal research and development efforts for ecosystem vendors. The specification is available royalty-free to all members.

Initial backers include Aruba Networks, Avaya, Broadcom, Brocade, Delta Electronics, Delta Networks, Freescale Semiconductor, Pulse Electronics and Ruijie Networks.

"Formed in June, the goal of the Alliance is to work alongside the IEEE to accelerate the deployment of 2.5G and 5G BASE-T from multiple component and system vendors by enabling an end-to-end solution," said Simon Assouad, President, MGBASE-T Alliance. "The new Ethernet speeds will enable enterprise users to unleash the full benefits of next generation 802.11ac (Wave 1 & 2) wireless technology using existing cabling infrastructure."

The MGBASE-T Alliance members will support the work of  the IEEE 802.3 that  allows the industry to achieve interoperability and ultimately enable widespread and
