Turning Ideas into Action for 1.6T Ethernet

Ushering in the Next Ethernet Rate


The explosion of Edge computing, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), and AI applications are set to significantly increase demand from their networks as new requirements accelerate the adoption of higher speed Ethernet connectivity solutions to satisfy these data needs. This trend is disrupting traditional timelines for the development and availability of connectivity technologies and will have a major impact on the ecosystem powering these new technologies, including Network Equipment Manufacturers, Data Center operators, interconnect manufacturers and system integrators.

According to Dell’Oro Group, the pace of migration from 800 Gbps to 1600 Gbps will be nearly twice as fast as what we have typically observed in traditional front-end networks connecting general-purpose servers.
