Ethernet - News, Features, and Slideshows
Ethernet in pictures
The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) this week announced intentions to define parameters for Ethernet network-as-a-service (NaaS), an effort Ethernet inventor Robert Metcalfe hailed as "a new network paradigm."
On the heels of the formation of a vendor consortium to promote the need, the IEEE this week said it will explore standardization of 25Gbps Ethernet.
Cisco is considering joining a handful of companies, including Google and Microsoft, that have defined a specification for 25Gbps and 50Gbps Ethernet for data centers requiring greater than 10/40Gbps.
Reviewing the highlights of Ethernet's first four decades
Telecommunications and data centre provider Vocus Communications (ASX: VOC) has posted half year revenue of $30.6 million, driven largely by sales of its fibre network and data centre services.
Have you ever broken the connector on an Ethernet cable, but didn't want to go out and buy a replacement? If you only have one or two broken cable heads, it's probably not worth it to find a crimper and new RJ45 connectors. This quick, clever, and inexpensive hack from Instructables makes quick work of repairing a snapped Ethernet connector with a razor, cutting pliers, and two cable ties.
Cisco, HP and others are waging an epic battle to gain control of the data center, but at the same time they are joining forces to push through new Ethernet standards that could greatly ease management of those increasingly virtualized IT nerve centers.
Even though strides are being made to define standards for extending Ethernet to handle data center applications, these advances will not be a panacea, vendors say.
