Ethernet roadmap 2015

Think 100 Gbps Ethernet is The Coming Thing? You ain’t seen nothing yet: In 2025 you’ll run 100 Gbps on the server, 400 Gbps on the switch and 1 Tbps on the router. This is what the Ethernet Alliance’s 2015 roadmap expects to be able to deliver. Between now and 2020, the group expects to have ratified the 25 Gbps speed proposed last year by the 25G Ethernet Consortium, along with 50 Gbps, 200 Gbps and 400 Gbps documents. The 2015 Ethernet Roadmap shows a roadmap for physical links through 2020 and looks into the future terabit speeds as well.

    Enourmous forecast for our future. Technologie is growing very fast. Speed, performance, capacity isn’t enough any more, even for daily use in computer issues, if there is a time span over two till five years. We are’nt fascinated any more, if there are new technologies availible on the tech market.

    Ethernet Alliance issues 2015 Ethernet Roadmap at OFC

    At OFC 2015 (March 24-26) in Los Angeles, the Ethernet Alliance released its 2015 Ethernet Roadmap.

    Four new speeds – 2.5 Gigabit per second (Gb/s); 5 Gb/s; 25 Gb/s; and 400 Gb/s Ethernet – are currently in development by the IEEE, while the industry is also considering 50Gb/s and 200 Gb/s Ethernet.

    The Ethernet Alliance says it developed the 2015 Ethernet Roadmap to bring clarity to this mix of speeds, application spaces, and market drivers in the near-term, as well as explore speeds beyond 2020 which could be 800 Gb/s; 1 Terabyte per second (Tb/s); 1.6 Tb/s; 6.4 Tb/s; and 10 Tb/s Ethernet.

    “Ethernet is constantly evolving and diversifying into new markets and application spaces.”

    “Today’s Ethernet landscape is vastly different than in years past. Ethernet’s growing diversification is happening from within as people seek to bring the benefits of Ethernet to a multitude of different market spaces. It’s no longer being driven by speed increases in just factors of 10,”
