On Tuesday, 8 December 2009, Robert Jadon talks about the future direction of Ethernet technologies. The is a joint meeting hosted by the Buenaventura Communication and the Microwave Technology Societies.
Gigabit Ethernet is a ubiquitous interconnect that constantly affects our lives. As applications like cloud computing and video become a part of our daily lives, existing infrastructure becomes more and more strained. 10 Gigabit Ethernet has gained traction in metro and data center applications, and continues to proliferate with the 10/100/1000 Ethernet structure in place. The presentation will cover 10 Gigabit Ethernet, how it has evolved, and how it is being implemented today.
