The 2020 Ethernet Roadmap was recently published by the Ethernet Alliance to provide the ICT industry with the directions needed to navigate the many roads making up today’s Ethernet ecosystem.
With all the new standards released by the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group and the supporting technologies, navigating today’s Ethernet has grown increasingly complex. When looking at today’s Ethernet, the application space must be considered before the relevant speeds and solutions can be determined.
The 2020 Ethernet Roadmap is intended to help users plot their path through the myriad of rates and solutions available today. Ethernet nomenclature is explained, as well as technical reference material that will help users understand how Ethernet is achieving 100GbE, 200GbE, and 400GbE.
The roadmap is a two-sided ‘map’ that illustrates the speeds and application spaces on the front-side and the Ethernet ecosystem and technologies on the back-side.
The map has enough resolution to print as a 600 mm x 900 mm poster.
