Are there are any active equipment manufacturers considering the Tera connector as a standard interf

I've noticed that Category 7 and the Tera connector are growing in interest here in Australia. Could you tell me whether or not there are any active equipment manufacturers considering the Tera connector as a standard interface?
Yes, manufacturers are looking at TERA for their active equipment, although none have released it yet. The greatest benefit to TERA is being able to share one channel with two 10/100 devices and an upgrade to gig only requires a patch cord change. This is becoming popular in data center electronics and switching electronics. Also, with nearly 50 Gbps of Shannon Capacity, it is probably the only 15 year copper infrastructure solution. It could theoretically do 10 Gbps on two pair. Watch for new electronic updates coming soon, especially centered around the 10GBASE-T standard.
