IEEE 802.3 Study Group Supports 100 Gbps as Next Ethernet Speed

The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 Higher Speed Study Group (HSSG) voted to support 100 Gb/s as the next speed for Ethernet. In addition, the IEEE 802.3 HSSG also agreed to support reaches of at least 100 meters on OM3 MMF (multimode fiber) and of at least 10km on SMF (single-mode fiber).

The Ethernet Alliance, an industry group dedicated to the continued success and expansion of Ethernet technology, described the vote as another significant milestone for Ethernet.
