LAS VEGAS - There was a time when the Ethernet roadmap was about one thing - going faster. In 2016, that's no longer the case. Work is progressing on multiple speeds, including 2.5 Gbps, 5 Gbps, 25 Gbps and 50 Gbps as a new class of mid-range speeds.
Dave Chalupsky chairs a number of BASE-T Ethernet efforts at both the IEEE and the Ethernet Alliance and is very optimistic about Ethernet's continued dominance of the connected landscape. In the years ahead, with more options and backwards compatibility, it's likely that the ubiquity of Ethernet will continue unabated.
In an interview with Enterprise Networking Planet at the Interop show here, Chalupsky details the Ethernet roadmap.
