The Ethernet Alliance has announced the addition of new members Corning, JDSU, Molex, Nortel, the Association for Communications Technology Professionals in Higher Education (ACUTA) and the Open Fabrics Alliance.

JDSU indicated that it became a member of the consortium to help shape current and emerging standards within the Ethernet industry, as part of its ongoing commitment to the continued success and evolution of Ethernet technology.

Nortel said it is joining in order to collaborate with other members in areas including the IEEE Higher Speed Study Group and the Provider Backbone Bridges projects currently underway.

Our members look to the Ethernet Alliance to help support the efforts of the IEEE 802 Ethernet standards bodies in the development of next generation Ethernet technologies, said Alliance president Brad Booth.
