I am currently doing a complete electrical rewiring on my house, so it is a good opportunity to dedicate a closet as a termination point and add some Cat 6 ethernet cabling along with sockets at various places in the home.
I am worried though that Ethernet cables might become obsolete sooner than later. Is there any new hot and upcoming technology that could potentially displace ethernet?
How about fiber? I’ve been hearing about how fiber will replace other technologies since the early nineties, but apart fom some specific applications, like switch to switch connections, fiber never managed to get widely accepted.
Is there any other type of cable that I am not aware of?
