What is the road ahead for Ethernet? Directions now available from the Ethernet Alliance

Share this on social media:

The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, has launched its roadmap for 2020. 

The 2020 Ethernet Roadmap is designed to provide the industry with the directions needed to navigate all the roads that make up today’s Ethernet ecosystem, as well as all the new standards released by the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group and the supporting technologies.

When looking at today’s Ethernet, the application space must be considered before the relevant speeds and solutions can be determined, according to the Ethernet Alliance. The new roadmap will help users plot their path through the countless rates and solutions available. Ethernet nomenclature is explained in the document, and there is a wealth of technical reference material aid users in their understanding of how Ethernet is achieving 100GbE, 200GbE, and 400GbE. 

Split into two parts, the 2020 Ethernet Roadmap is a two-sided document that illustrates the speeds and application spaces on the front side and the Ethernet ecosystem and technologies on the rear side. It is available as a folded, printed document that will be given away at various Ethernet Alliance events - as and when they take place in the current climate - throughout the year. Full details can be found on the ‘Events’ section of the organisation’s website, and more information about the roadmap is available on the home-page of the site. The map has enough resolution to print on a 24” by 36” poster.
