Access "Let the 40 Gigabit Ethernet migration begin"

Issue Overview

Network Evolution - Vol 3/ No.6

The need for capacity and speed explodes as network teams build private and hybrid clouds and deliver video throughout their campuses and branch offices. So even if they don’t need 40 GbE today, they’ll need to build networks that can be transitioned in the future. And that won’t be easy. The transition will mean testing new equipment as vendors race to release 40 and 100 GbE-ready switching. It will also require consideration of new cabling and optics. In this edition, we discuss the challenges that lie ahead so when you invest in your current 10 GbE infrastructure, you do so with future migration to 40 and 100 GbE in mind.  Access >>>

      It may seem early to consider 40 and 100 GbE migration since 10 GbE is so young, but with the explosion of video and cloud applications, users must build 10 GbE networks today that can be easily migrated in the future.
