Attend this Ethernet Alliance panel @ OFC on Tuesday, March 21 from 11:00 -12:00. The panel will discuss the diverse applications driving Ethernet optics to new level of diversity and scale. Ethernet drives more fiber optics sales than any other protocol and new applications are pushing Ethernet to newer speeds based on 50G and 100G serial technologies including 50GbE, 100GbE (2X50G), 200GbE (4X50G) and 400GbE (8X50G and 4X100G). The hyperscale data centers are pushing Ethernet to faster speeds and larger scales than ever before and look to use Flex Ethernet (FlexE) to drive even more speeds like 500GbE and Terabit Ethernet (TbE).
This panel of optics and systems experts will discuss how the 100GbE market is thriving yet fracturing into tens of flavors that may hinder volume production.
