Gigabit Ethernet to get a boost to 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps?

Posted on Wednesday, October 08 2014 @ 14:29:48 CEST by

EE Times writes Broadcom is leading an initiative to create new Gigabit Ethernet standards that increase the maximum bandwidth to 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps to help keep pace with evolutions in WiFi. The new standards will fill the hole between the current consumer-oriented Gigabit and the enterprise-class 10G products.
So Broadcom, with support from Cisco, is calling for a meeting to determine interest in a so-called Next-Generation Enterprise Access Base-T PHY. The idea will get its first formal hearing in San Antonio in November and is already catching buzz.

"It's gotten a lot of attention quickly," said John D'Ambrosia, a Dell fellow and veteran of several Ethernet standards efforts. "I've seen a lot of people nodding their heads over this."

The group is calling for a standard that will cover 100 meters of Category E twisted pair cabling. The call for interest does not specify throughput, but the effort is expected to drive toward work on 2.5G and 5G rates.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see a dual-rate effort come out of this," D'Ambrosia said.
