The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 working group formed the Higher Speed Study Group (HSSG) to evaluate the requirements for the next generation of Ethernet technology.

“There are a number of activities helping to drive the volume adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE),” said Brad Booth, president of the Ethernet Alliance industry group and director of advanced products for Quake Technologies. “IEEE 802.3an, also known as 10GBASE-T, was ratified June 8, 2006. This standard enables a low cost, ease-of-use, copper cabling solution for the transmission of 10GbE. Additionally, SFF-8431, also known as 10GbE SFP+ (small form factor pluggable) optics, offers lower cost and reduced power consumption. SFF-8431 is expected to be ratified by the end of 2006.

The growing deployment of 10GbE standards-compliant equipment is generating demand for a higher speed of Ethernet technology," Booth said. "The formation of the HSSG is a critical step in ensuring that the standards community is ready to meet that demand."

"By forming this study group, the industry is focusing its resources and talents on developing a higher speed of Ethernet that can accommodate what are already rapidly growing bandwidth demands,” said Jim McGregor, principal analyst, In-Stat. “With the support of the industry behind this effort, the HSSG can begin to explore the technical requirements and develop a higher speed solution that is compatible with existing Ethernet technologies and will ensure the continued growth of the Internet and the networked world.”
