Redpartk Ethernet: First Ethernet for iPhone and iPad

Ethernet, until now, was only a no-go zone. We were limited to enjoy Ethernet networks only at our office or home, but now iPhone and iPad will be able to have Ethernet connection.

The iPhone and iPad users will now be able to connect where there’s no Wi-Fi connectivity could be avail, all they need is Redpart Ethernet Cable.

The Redpart Ethernet is a modified version of the ordinary USB to Ethernet adapter. Though this cable is different as it has normal RJ45 connector at one terminal and 7-foot CAT5e cabling but the other side ends with Apple Lighting connecter. The price has set at $89.

Redpark Ethernet, no doubt, will be a great help for people who don’t have Wi-Fi connections to be connected, however, it has few limitations.

  • Only Apps developed using RedSocket SDK can use Redpark Ethernet Cable (RedSocket SDK is available to download free for developers). Although Apple App store rolls out emulator that works with the cable.
  • The cable is only for networking purpose, it can’t be used to chrage iPhone or iPod.
  • It only works with iOS 8.0 or later versions.
  • The bandwidth is limited to 5 Mbps.

So, consider above limitations before you get ahead with this amazing technology. An Online FAQ has been provided online to get further information.

The Future of Ethernet speed

IT Industry constantly produces technologies which prevail for a little while, often for just few years, and then end. However, some technologies have proved to be omnipresent, resilient and widely usable such as Ethernet. It’s been 40 years now the Ethernet jumped into tech sphere and still dominates.

Ethernet, making communications smooth and faster, present in almost every organization, small or large, and every passing day observes this technology on the way to be faster and smarter.

Ethernet Speeds

Future of Ethernet speed

There is common saying that “Bandwidth is king in networking”, based on the extensive standards to define logical and physical elements of Ethernet. The Ethernet Alliance and IEEE are trying to define more precise standards to navigate around Ethernet spectrum.

Nowadays, 1 GB Ethernet servers and Network Interface Cards are very common and the 10 Gig Ethernet, one step ahead, deployments are underway, expected to outclass 1 Gig Ethernet in very next year.

Emerging standards for upcoming Ethernet will open up new bandwidth controlling points within today’s known range and it will enable substantially faster bandwidth limits such as 200 Gigabit and 400 gigabit.

The Chairman of Ethernet Alliance, John D’Ambrosia told about this conflicting situation, “It’s not as chaotic as it seems.” he continued, “The Ethernet market is diversifying, and there are groups working on everything from DC [Power over Ethernet] to 400 GigE.”

The diverse Ethernet options will allow businessmen to choose the technology which is beneficial for their short and long term purpose, D’Amborsia further explained.

To make Ethernet faster remain a top priority for standard organizations, they are trying to double and even quadruple 100 Gig Ethernet. This amazing speed will support many service providers which are seeking to load tons of HD data.
