Ethernet Technology Summit

San Jose, CA
IEEE Plugfest PoE Certification Technology Tradeshow Webinar


The Ethernet Technology Summit focuses on the use of Ethernet throughout the networking space. This includes the emergence of 10-Gigabit Ethernet as a key LAN technology on the desktop and in data centers. It also covers the ongoing standardization effort for 40-Gigabit and 100-Gigabit Ethernet. It also includes the use of Ethernet as a carrier backbone and transport method, as well as in wireless, industrial, embedded, and storage applications. To meet carrier needs, the Ethernet ecosystem must include quality-of-service guarantees, management tools (so-called operations, administration, and management or OAM), performance analysis, high availability, scalability, security, and service-level agreements. Other topics of interest include low power systems, power-over-Ethernet, Ethernet as a home networking technology, backplane Ethernet, and embedded Ethernet.
