Ethernet Roadmaps Update

Tuesday, 13 March, 12:45-13:45
Theater II, Hall E
Session organized by Ethernet Alliance

Session Description

This exciting and interactive panel will discuss the latest developments in Ethernet that are summarized in the 2018 Ethernet Roadmap.  The 2018 Ethernet Roadmap is an updated overview of the latest Ethernet technologies that are being developed and deployed. While many people know about 400GbE being the fastest Ethernet speed being standardized, other speeds such as 2.5, 5, 25 and 50GbE have been developed for particular applications.  This panel will look at the variety of speeds and their target applications that are driving these speeds.  The roadmap will discuss the speeds as well as the timing of these speeds and the underlying technologies.
Free copies of the 2018 Ethernet Roadmap will be handed out to attendees.  The roadmap is full of excellent graphics that will be used in the panel presentation.
