The XKL team is getting amped up for this year’s 3rd Annual Ethernet Technology Summit in San Jose, CA on February 21-23, 2012. After winning the Best in Show, Best New Product Launch at ITEXPO, no wonder the overall feeling is excitement.
Ethernet Technology delegates have something to look forward to as well. XKL’s Chad Lamb will be speaking at the Terabit Ethernet Workshop, Part 1 – from 9 – noon on Tuesday, February 21.
Even though 40 GbE and 100 GbE are just beginning to appear in data centers, it is surely now time to start thinking about a new generation. Now that 10GbE has become commonplace, aggregation links will have to provide much higher throughput. A new generation will also be necessary for telecom backbones, cloud computing, wireless backhaul, supercomputing, video networks, and many other applications. We will need new standards, new signaling methods, new test equipment, new cabling and connectors, new power reduction approaches, and many other components and system-level elements. Starting now will mean that initial terabit Ethernet implementations could be available in the 2015-2016 period.
Confirmed speakers in this session are:
Chad Lamb, Director of Engineering, XKL, “Preparing for 100G and Beyond”
Dan Dove, Sr Dir Technology, Applied Micro, “Next Generation 100G Optical Networks – Cost, Power, and Density”
John D’Ambrosia, Chief Ethernet Evangelist, Dell, “Standards Beyond 100GbE”
Saman Sadr, Sr Mgr Analog Design, Snowbush IP, “Implementing a 32G SerDes/PHY”
