The rise of cloud computing and the expansion of the data center are pushing the latest Ethernet speeds up, while big data based on cloud technology has already added to carriers' workloads. To meet this requirement, the data center extends the bandwidth capabilities that are parallel to existing infrastructure. Rapid growth in the expected 25G and 100G Ethernet deployments is a testament to this trend.
In order to be able to handle the increasing data load, the industry's largest long-distance cloud companies have together with their core network's data center operators, to jointly use the 100G Ethernet architecture. However, most operators believe that 100G or even 40G is somewhat excessive for server connections because its workload only needs to be incrementally improved over 10G networks. This is why, although 40G and 100G Ethernet have been introduced, 25G and 50G Ethernet are still one of the reasons for the common choices within the data center. Below we will briefly explain wcontinue reading →
