Ethernet Networks Progress to 400 Gb/s

February 5, 2013 – Recently, the IEEE 802.3 Higher Speed Ethernet Consensus Ad Hoc group decided to focus its efforts on the next data rate of 400 Gb/s. The evolution of Ethernet technology hasbeen nothing short of remarkable: The next speed is in development before the current one has even reached the masses.

Ethernet Evolution: To 100 Gb/s and Beyond

Since its development in the early 1970s, Ethernet has constantly evolved to support emerging demands of local area computer networks. Ethernet originally used a shared coaxial cable as its communication media, but migrated to unshielded twisted-pair, point-to-point links that increased bandwidth as well as reach from local area networks (LANs) to wide area networks (WANs).
