Over the past two years the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group has been working to evolve Ethernet beyond 400 Gigabits per second (Gb/s). This has bifurcated into two distinct projects. The IEEE P802.3df project is defining 800 Gb/s Ethernet using 100 Gb/s signaling technology. The IEEE P802.3dj project is defining 800 Gb/s and 1.6 Tb/s Ethernet using 200 Gb/s or greater signaling technology.
What you will learn
This webinar will provide a technical overview of the IEEE P802.3df project, which is developing solutions for 400 Gb/s Ethernet and 800 Gb/s Ethernet based on 100 Gb/s electrical and optical signaling. The webinar will then explore the IEEE P802.3dj project, which will be developing 200 Gb/s, 400 Gb/s, 800 Gb/s, and 1.6 Tb/s Ethernet solutions, based on 200 Gb/s or greater electrical and optical signaling. Part of this exploration of IEEE P802.3dj will cover the evolution from 100 Gb/s to 200 Gb/s or greater signaling.
