Ethernet Alliance showcases latest industry innovations, including 100GbE - Network Accessories

The Ethernet Alliance showcased a number of the latest Ethernet solutions at the Optical Fibre Communication Conference and Exposition in Los Angeles last week.

According to the consortium, innovative 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) advancements from an array of member companies were on show at the expo, which took place between March 24th and 26th 2015.

Cisco, Hitachi, Finisar and Juniper Networks were just some of the organisations taking part, showing off their latest solutions to technology sector stakeholders.

Scott Kipp, president of the Ethernet Alliance, said its multi-vendor demonstration was designed to illustrate how standardisation is accelerating the development and evolution of forward-looking Ethernet technologies.

He claimed Ethernet is extending its application horizon into new markets, as the latest solutions become available to businesses and organisations.

Mr Kipp added that the demo "clearly showed" that 40GbE and 100GbE technology has reached the level of maturity needed for active deployment.

The demonstration sought to emulate two data centres, with each containing a core device and a top-of-rack switch.

Additional analysis and test emulation equipment was connected to simulate the traffic typically seen within these setups.

The Ethernet Alliance said a main focus was highlighting the various types of 100GbE links being leveraged in these configurations.

These include QSFP28 LR4, CPAK LR4, CFP2 SR10, CPAK SR10, CFP2 LR4, CFP2 ER4f and CPAK ER4f.

Mr Kipp claimed that Ethernet is "constantly evolving" and diversifying into new markets and application spaces.

"Such expansion is successful when there is greater visibility about a technology’s future," he noted.
