Evolution to 100G

As networks expand and communications infrastructures evolve to support our growing reliance on technology, the need for greater availability of bandwidth has never been greater.  Ethernet-based infrastructures are becoming the transport technology of choice for many new applications because they offer a cost-effective, reliable and robust solution.


Current 10 Gb/s networking has become insufficient to meet tomorrow’s networking needs and 40 Gb/s is insufficient for many future network applications, so many network operators are heralding 100G as the network rate of the future. This whitepaper examines current high-bandwidth networking trends in order to understand the driving factors behind 100G networking.
