Ethernet Alliance Sees Promising Interoperability Results for 25G

A multi-vendor feasibility event testing pre-standard 25 Gbps Ethernet equipment and cabling has found an 86% interoperability success rate.

The recent 25 Gbps technical feasibility event held at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) produced promising results, according to The Ethernet Alliance, with a high percentage of tests exceeding expected requirements of the proposed IEEE 25 Gbps standard. Data captured during the testing was also provided to the IEEE P802.3by 25 Gbps Ethernet Task Force to aid in its refinement of IEEE’s proposed 25 Gigabit Ethernet (25GbE) specification.

“Work on the IEEE P802.3by 25 Gb/s standard is progressing quickly, but having this data available has been highly beneficial to the development of the 25 Gigabit Ethernet standard,” said Mark Nowell, chairman, IEEE P802.3by 25Gb/s Ethernet Task Force; and senior director of engineering, Cisco Systems. “The positive results generated at the Ethernet Alliance 25Gb/s feasibility event were very encouraging. I would like to thank the Ethernet Alliance for making this event a reality and bringing this data forward.”

“Interoperability doesn’t just happen. Ensuring the multi-vendor interoperability everyone is seeking requires investment from the Ethernet Alliance, technology developers, and the industry as a whole.
