10 Gigabit Ethernet Interconnection with Wide Area Networks

With the advent of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, the commonality of line rates between OC-192 SONET and 10GE has opened up the opportunity to simplify the interface. This paper describes how 10GE nodes can easily interconnect with OC192 SONET networks without leaving the Ethernet cost model behind.

40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet Technology Overview

The IEEE P802.3ba 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s Ethernet Task Force has been working on the development of 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet. In October 2008, the Task Force took a major step forward, as it generated Draft 1.0 of the amendment to the IEEE Std 802.3TM- 2008 Ethernet standard. The Task Force has developed a single architecture capable of supporting both 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet, while producing physical layer specifications for communication across backplanes, copper cabling, multi-mode gigabit per second, and single-mode gigabit per second. This white paper provides an overview of the 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet project and the underlying technologies.

CEI-28G: Paving the Way for 100 Gigabit

While the first generation of devices supporting 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) will utilize a 10 lane by 10 Gb/s signaling rate, future power and size reduction requirements will drive the need for a faster, narrower interface. Noting these future needs, the Optical Internetworking Forum has initiated development of standards for the next generation of electrical signaling for long reach and short reach applications.

This paper provides an overview of the CEI-28G project, which defines electrical specifications for 28 Gbaud/s signaling for next generation chip-to-chip and chip-to-module applications that support transmission of 100 Gb/s data rates, such as 100 Gigabit Ethernet and OTU4.

Data Center Bridging

Networks are the essential part of any modern data center and they must deliver reliability, availability and high performance. Enterprises rely on their data centers to run business operations, service providers rely on their data centers to generate revenues by delivering network services, and content providers rely on their data centers to distribute revenue producing content. Ethernet is the most widely deployed networking technology today. Currently, it fulfills increasingly demanding requirements for a variety of business needs. But can Ethernet technology evolve to help data centers improve costeffectiveness and meet the demands for next-generation services.

The wide adoption of 1G Ethernet passive optical networks (EPON) (per IEEE std P802.3ahTM) provided a significant jump in access network capacity and created demand for greater bandwidth-intensive applications and services such as Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), Video-on-Demand (VoD) and high-grade internet protocol (IP) telephony known as Voice over IP (VoIP). To address these market demands, the IEEE P802.3av Task Force was created in September 2006 and its 10G-EPON draft builds upon the compatibility with the existing 1GEPON.

Road to 100G: Facing the Challenges of Developing 100 Gbps Platforms

This paper will address the challenges of scaling packet networks from the current state-of-the-art, 10 Gbps limited packet-aware, to next generation 100 Gbps all packet-aware, any-to-any networks. The areas covered will include optical/electrical interfaces, interface adaptation, data plane processing, control plane processing, as well as switching, system power and printed circuit board requirements. These challenges apply to platforms that aggregate lower speed interfaces, up to 100 Gbps, as well as platforms with pure 100 Gbps interfaces.

SC09 White Paper

Continuous reduction of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is the ultimate goal for building next generation data center networks. Key technology transitions applicable to future data centers are network convergence and virtualization. The Ethernet Alliance multi-vendor, multi-technology showcase demonstrates a proof-of-concept converged network based on 10GbE showing its ability to provide high performance networking for various traffic types, including LAN, SAN and IPC traffic. This showcase highlights how network convergence takes advantage of high speed Ethernet to deliver client messaging, storage, and server application communications over a unified network while maintaining the same level of high performance delivered in separate networks. In addition data center interconnect technologies such as 10GBASE-T and SFP+ 10GbE Direct Attach Cables will be demonstrated.

Storage Traffic in a Converged 10 Gigabit Ethernet Network

The advantages of IEEE 802.3TM Ethernet are well documented and established for implementation in traditional Local Area Networks (LAN). The role of Ethernet in the LAN data center is evolving beyond the interconnection of clients, servers and switches. The modern Ethernet, specifically 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE), is becoming the new interconnection technology of choice for Storage Area Networks (SAN) using the Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) protocol on an IP-based network. The usage of Ethernet infrastructure is being further extended by a relatively new protocol that maps Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). This allows servers, storage, and management devices to communicate over Ethernet links in a converged data center fabric.

Supercomputing 2008 10 Gigabit Ethernet Converged Data Center Demonstration

The Ethernet Alliance converged data center demonstration shows the deployment of several types of mixed traffic over a multi-vendor 10 GbE infrastructure with physical links that consist of both UTP copper, twinax copper and fiber optic media. The SAN/LAN network is converged at Layer 2 using Ethernet as the common transport protocol. The demonstration data center runs 10 GbE application-to-application traffic, iSCSI storage and low latency traffic with a streaming video environment from iSCSI storage, FCoE over a lossless Ethernet network and converged traffic types via virtualized servers. The Ethernet Alliance demonstration shows a physical data center built with equipment from multiple vendors, switches, network interface card (NICs), converged network adapters (CNAs) and cabling systems that supports a complex yet realistic set of 10 GbE application environments.
