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.
