Ethernet's Rate Roadmap

SESSION: Ethernet's Rate Roadmap

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM



There is something comforting in predictability. With Ethernet predictability has been its rate progression - 10x increments from its initial 10Mb/s to 100Mb/s, to 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s, with little to no controversy. The simultaneous introduction of 40GbE and 100GbE effectively ended this legacy. It appears that Ethernet has abandoned its 10x increment legacy in favor of an x4 increment, leading to considerable speculation by some regarding the future trajectory of Ethernet. Will the next speed after 400Gb/s be 1.6Tb/s? This would seem to be the case if we were to simply multiple 400Gb/s by 4.
