IEEE Group Settles On Faster Ethernet Plans

A technical group working on the next generation of Ethernet has agreed to disagree and will now work on a single standard that covers both 40Gbps and 100Gbps speeds.

The Higher Speed Study Group (HSSG), part of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), made the decision last week at its meeting in San Francisco after months of debate between backers of the two speeds. If the IEEE approves the move late this year as expected, a standard may be completed by mid-2010, said John D'Ambrosia, chair of the HSSG.

Ethernet has sped up by a multiple of 10 several times, from 10Mbps to 100Mbps and ultimately from 1Gbps to 10Gbps, the current fastest version. Some HSSG members backed a similar boost this time and that 100Gbps plan appeared to have won out late last year. But others pushed for a 40Gbps standard.
Mmmmmm... I want me some 100Gbps in the house... now if the ISP will get off its butt and catch up...

Who wouldnt lol. I would be loving it.

why NOT make the new standard 100GB/s? I mean...they're gonna have to eventually anyways...this just means you have to change the standard TWICE.

Oh well...

whats the point of being able to recevie info that fast when hard drives only need the 1gbps stand to max out for home usage. since 130mbs is the fastest sustatined rate...anything higher then that would just be a waste really unless you are a ISP.

If it leaves the ISP station at 100GB/s then by the time it gets to you it'll be less by a nice nice margin but it'll still be fast..

Think of this as 2 racecars. Neither has fuel but is rocket launched.

One is lauched at 1000mph
The other is 100mph.

Which will stop first?

it doesn't matter, your data only travels as fast as it's slowest line, thats why routers do best rout calculations.

who wouldnt want those speeds, itll cost us a fortunea month to get access to things like that
