IEEE says next Ethernet standard will be 100Gbps

Posted on Sunday, December 10 2006 @ 09:55:20 CET by


The IEE High Speed Study Group votes for making 100G Ethernet the next standard.
The IEEE will work to standardize 100G Ethernet over distances as far as 6 miles over single-mode fiber optic cabling and 328 feet over multimode fiber.

With the approval to move to 100G Ethernet, the next step is to form a 100G Ethernet Task Force to study how to achieve a standard that is technically feasible and economically viable, says John D'Ambrosia, chair of the IEEE HSSG, and scientist of components technology at Force10 Networks.

"There is still a lot of work to be done to finalize our objectives, and where this thing will go," D'Ambrosia says, adding that a formal task force could be approved by July 2007. A completed 100G Ethernet standard might appear by 2009 or 2010. "The next step is getting the project into the 802 process," he adds, referring to the IEEE's umbrella of Working Groups for networking standards, which govern everything from wired Ethernet and Token Ring to wireless LANs and WiMAX.
