IEEE Adopts Baseline for 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T Specs

The IEEE P802.3bz 2.5/5GBASE-T Task Force unanimously adopted baseline technology to be used for 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T specifications.

 “There is a great deal of industry support for the development of a single IEEE 802.3™ standard enabling multi-vendor interoperability for 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T Ethernet,” said Dave Chalupsky, chair of the IEEE P802.3bz task force and network architect at Intel Corporation.

“Swift achievement of consensus among participants has enabled the task force to move immediately into the next phase of the project, drafting the initial specifications.” “Ethernet is seeing growth in diversity of rates to address different applications,” said David Law, chair of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group and distinguished engineer with HP Networking. “2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T serve this need at the edge of the network for a number of important use cases, such as satisfying the growing bandwidth needs of wireless access points supporting IEEE 802.11ac.”
