It has become a well-known fact that the demand for bandwidth from consumers and enterprises is growing exponentially. So much so, in fact, that what was considered high-speed not so long ago is now starting to look like yesterday’s news. What was at first only important in the world of network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) has moved into the realm of network service providers (NSPs). To stay in the game, these providers must upgrade their networks to higher speeds. However, since 40G/100G technologies are continually changing, the buy-in for such upgrades is neither cheap, nor simple.
This webinar discusses the evolution of IP, the Ethernet changes for 40G and 100G and the connection between old and new networks.
