Navigating the Road to Terabit Ethernet

The road to terabit Ethernet is long and winding…. but terabit Ethernet IS coming. CommScope’s Jim Young walks us through the Ethernet Roadmap, and why it’s a map worth following.

New_Ethernet_RoadmapWhen I look back on my career, it was always about fiber: how to use it, where to use it, when to plan for more of it. That’s where useful tools like the Ethernet roadmap come in handy.

Created by the Ethernet Alliance, the roadmap shows where we are now in terms of speed, and where we’re likely to be in five, 10, 15 years from now. It shows where we focus our attention and how to meet the challenges of growing bandwidth demand. The roadmap can be a great tool for businesses to chart a path forward and get in sync with the people developing applications for mobile users around the world.
