Media Alert: Ethernet Alliance Executives to Address Future of Ethernet Speeds at Key Ethernet Industry Events
BEAVERTON, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and
advancement of Ethernet technologies, today announced John D'Ambrosia,
chairman, Ethernet Alliance (News - Alert), and chief Ethernet evangelist, CTO office,
Dell, and Scott Kipp, president, Ethernet Alliance, and senior
technologist, Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. will be featured
speakers at two upcoming Ethernet industry events: the North
American Network Operators' Group (NANOG (News - Alert) 56) meeting in Dallas, TX
and the 21st Euro-IX
Forum in Stockholm, Sweden.
At NANOG 56, Mr. Kipp will offer a presentation entitled "Bandwidth
Growth and the Next Speed of Ethernet" at 12:30pm CDT (News - Alert) on October 22,
2012. Mr. D'Ambrosia will join him in a reprise of the presentation
during the Euro-IX Forum, November 12 - 13, 2012. "Bandwidth Growth
and the Next Speed of Ethernet" explores the recent findings of the
IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3 Industry Connections Bandwidth Assessment Report and a status
update on development of the next Ethernet speed. It also provides a
forum for discussion with members of both organizations on those needs
that will drive development of higher-rate Ethernet speeds, and efforts
to achieve High-Speed Ethernet (HSE) consensus.
"High-speed, low-latency network connections are the cornerstone of
tomorrow's networks. Network operators and Internet exchanges are at the
heart of the Internet; as the move toward ubiquitous 24/7 connectivity
continues, they're seeing aggressive growth and unprecedented levels of
bandwidth demand," said Mr. Kipp. "This presentation affords us an
opportunity for meaningful discussion with network operators and
Internet exchanges about the implications of the next Ethernet speed and
how it will impact their networks."
"The Ethernet Alliance remains committed to its goal of expanding
Ethernet and the Ethernet ecosystem on a global scale. As part of this
mandate, we're reaching out to key constituencies to not only keep them
informed on the latest Ethernet advancements but to gathr their input
on the development of the next speed of Ethernet," added Mr. D'Ambrosia.
"By tapping directly into the perceptions of our end users, we'll better
understand their priorities and needs. In turn, this will help us
facilitate greater consensus across the industry and drive a new wave of
