What the experts say about convergence
The cost of copper is going up whereas fibre is fairly stable, so there is more convergence in pricing. If you consider the price of the cables, jacks and active link components, the two will come much closer together than people were predicting a couple of years ago. The prime 10GbE fibre cabling standard is either ISO 11801 or EN 50173, and if I were altering a network I would want it to comply with those, they are both similar in technical content. As far as the fibre connect standard is concerned it is really a matter of choice, it does not really affect network operation, it is just the convenience of patching and maintenance.
