BEAVERTON, Ore., Nov. 14 — The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, today announced it is hosting a “Birds of a Feather” panel on the 2016 Ethernet roadmap at SC16 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Ethernet Roadmap session will be held from 5:15 – 7:00pm MT on Tuesday, November 15, 2016.
With a 44 percent share of supercomputers on the June TOP500 list, Ethernet continues to be the leading high-performance computing (HPC) interconnect technology in the industry segment. Led by Ethernet Alliance Chairman, John D’Ambrosia of Huawei Technologies, expert panelists Greg McSorley of Amphenol Corporation, David Chalupsky of Intel Corporation, and David Rodgers of Teledyne LeCroy, Inc. will address Ethernet’s latest developments and roadmap, and why it remains a dominant supercomputing technology. Discussion topics include the recent completion of 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 5GbE, and 25GbE standards, and work currently underway on specifications for 50GbE, 200GbE, and 400GbE. Additionally, the panel will explore next-generation FlexEthernet (FlexE) link aggregation at speeds of 75 to 500Gb, and new optical module form factors.
The Ethernet Roadmap will be held from 5:15 – 7:00pm PST Tuesday, November 15, 2016, in room 155-C of the Calvin L. Rampton Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City, Utah.
