IEEE Tech Talk: Single Pair Ethernet

New IEEE 802.3 standards and technologies deliver power and data over a single pair of wires to address the challenges of ‘operational technology” (OT) automation applications and simplify OT networks. This talk will explore some of the unique features and reasons for Single Pair Ethernet’s growing adoption in the OT space leveraging modern technology to revisit core Ethernet features and speeds suitable for automation and control applications.

Ethernet Alliance centers new building, industrial automation industry focus on SPE

The Ethernet Alliance has launched a new industry focus around Operational Technology (OT) networks found in building and industrial automation. With the development of Single-Pair Ethernet (SPE) creating new opportunities for solving challenges in OT networks, the Ethernet Alliance says it is seeking to connect with more expertise in the building- and industrial-automation industries.

IoT Community and IEEE collaborate to spur global industrial IoT uptake

The IoT Community and the IEEE IoT Initiative are collaborating on  activities to help accelerate the digital transformation of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and to speed the development of IoT for broader adoption across enterprise and industrial sectors. They seek to create a common industry language and framework in the areas of: Industrial IoT and Manufacturing; Smart Cities; Precision Agriculture; Healthcare; Security and Privacy; Computing and Information Processing; Communications and Connectivity, and other areas.

Know Your 400G Ethernet Options!

In 2017, the IEEE-SA Standards Board approved IEEE Standard 802.3bs. This resulted in the official launch of 400 Gigabit Ethernet. In theoretical terms, it is the advancement from 100G Ethernet and can operate four times faster than 100G. Not only is this, but it also offers a denser configuration and a better economy of scale. Unlike 100G transceiver modules, the 400G transceivers come with 8 channels and utilize PAM4 encoding to accomplish 50Gbps per channel.
