Force10 Networks, Inc. says this week’s ratification of the P802.3ba standard for 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) by the IEEE and its Task Force sets a needed standard as dynamic data centre conditions necessitate aggregating more traffic at much higher speeds.
“We commend the IEEE for their efforts as the standardization of 40 and 100 GbE is a key step, from a bandwidth perspective, toward converging storage, compute and network resources on to Ethernet technology,” said Henry Wasik, president and CEO of Force10 Networks.
“The standard is a necessary benchmark and an important step from which customers can build reliable, low-latency solutions capable of handling network traffic well into the future.”
