New 2018 Ethernet Roadmap Looks to Future Speeds of 1.6 Terabits/s

Today the Ethernet Alliance announced its new 2018 Ethernet Roadmap. The roadmap traces Ethernet’s path from 10 Mb/s through present-day speeds of 1 to 400GbE, and looks ahead to future speeds achieving up to 1.6 terabits (TbE) and beyond. The forward-looking map also provides guidance into key underlying technologies, current and future interfaces, and the numerous application spaces where Ethernet plays a fundamental role.

When you ask yourself, ‘What is Ethernet’s roadmap?’, you have to consider which road it is you’re taking. A rising number of increasingly diverse technologies and applications are driving the growth and expansion of the family of Ethernet solutions, so we’re beyond the days of just a single Ethernet roadmap,” said John D’Ambrosia, chairman, Ethernet Alliance; and senior principal engineer, Huawei. “As the leading industry voice for Ethernet, we’re ready to fulfill our mission of supporting Ethernet as new application spaces and markets begin capitalizing on the advantages it offers, both today and into tomorrow’s terabit-enabled future.”

The Ethernet Alliance’s new roadmap traces Ethernet’s path from 10 Mb/s through present-day speeds of 1 to 400 gigabit Ethernet (GbE), and looks ahead to future speeds achieving up to 1.6 terabits (TbE) and beyond. The forward-looking map also provides guidance into key underlying technologies, current and future interfaces, and the numerous application spaces where Ethernet plays a fundamental role.

The Ethernet Alliance will unveil the Roadmap today at a social gathering in San Diego at 3:00pm in the OFC 2018 booth #2648.
