2019-05-21 Upstream Data Concentration

from FB group Bell Telephone… May 22

I was connecting up equipment with cat5e and cat6 cabling capable of 1000 Meg’s, and there were 48 ports on the switches on campus. The GBIC feeds on, say, 4 switches were daisychained, so a total of 192 ports per fiber optic feeder. So…

I see so much advertising about 100 Meg’s but we all know that as it goes upstream, there is concentration, so a home is sharing 1G or 10G feeder with dozens or scores of neighbors. So is 100 Meg’s just advertising or can all of your neighborhood actually get it at the same time?
