University of Ethernet Webinar Series

The Ethernet Alliance has organized a number of webinars on Ethernet for your viewing pleasure. Ethernet 101 is the top webinar that introduces Ethernet at a high level. The other webinars are divided into columns that contain content on the Ethernet Physical Layer, Ethernet Protocols and Ethernet Topics. The higher numbered courses explore Ethernet in more detail in a similar way to University courses. If you have requests for a webinar on a specific topic, please send an email to president@ethernetalliance.org.

  • Ethernet 101:
    Introduction to Ethernet
    Ethernet 101:
    Introduction to Ethernet

    Introduction to Ethernet is the highest level webinar in the University of Ethernet series and introduces the viewers to Ethernet. This webinar reviews the early days of Ethernet when it was a shared medium, looks at typical deployments today and looks into future directions for Ethernet when links will run at 400 Gigabits/second and beyond. This webinar will not go into technical details and discusses new applications of Ethernet to show how Ethernet plans to expand into new areas over the next 40 years.

Ethernet
Physical Layer

  • Ethernet 102:
    802.3:
    The Physical Layer of Ethernet
    Ethernet 102: 802.3: The Physical Layer of Ethernet

    Ethernet 102: The Physical Layer of Ethernet is a high-level presentation on the basics of the Ethernet physical layer. This is one of the first webinars in the University of Ethernet program and investigates the physical layer from the cabling to the MAC layer. This presentation covers Ethernet nomenclature such as 10GBASE-LRM and signal encodings such as 10GBASE-R. From Fast Ethernet to 100 Gigabit Ethernet, Ethernet 102 shows real world examples of copper and physical interfaces.

  • Ethernet 202:
    10GBASE-T Revamped
    Ethernet 202: 10GBASE-T Revamped

    This webinar features an overview of 10G Ethernet connectivity options and various techniques to lower power dissipation when using 10GBASE-T transceivers. It also provides a brief explanation of available 10GBASE-T technology and the cabling options, a review of the key benefits of 10GBASE-T technology, a brief tutorial of EMI mitigation strategies for 10GBASE-T transceivers, and a list of various equipment types which use 10GBASE-T interfaces.

  • Ethernet 301:
    40/100GbE Fiber Cabling and Migration Practices
    Ethernet 301: 40/100GbE Fiber Cabling and Migration Practices

    Join presenters Frank Yang, CommScope, Inc. and Robert Reid, Panduit as they present the Ethernet Alliance webinar “Ethernet 301: 40/100GbE Fiber Cabling and Migration Practices” live on March 21, 2012. This webinar will discuss the advancement and future deployment of 10G Ethernet what it means and why it is important.

  • Ethernet 203:
    40GbE and 100GbE Physical Layers for Data Centers
    Ethernet 203: 40GbE and 100GbE Physical Layers for Data Centers

    Ethernet 203: 40GbE and 100GbE Physical Layers for Data Centers will explore market drivers for 40GbE and 100GbE, adoption trends in Ethernet with a focus on higher speeds, data center network architectures and topologies, cabling trends, standards, and pluggable transceivers, direct attach cables and backplanes.

  • Ethernet 104:
    Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet
    Ethernet 104: Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet

    The Ethernet 104: Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet webinar will take place on May 21st at 10am PT and will provide attendees with an in-depth introduction to Next Generation Enterprise Access (NGEA) 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet. Presented by John D’Ambrosia, chairman, Ethernet Alliance, and chief Ethernet evangelist, Dell; Dave Chalupsky, chair, Ethernet Alliance BASE-T Subcommittee, network hardware architect, Intel, and chair, IEEE P802.3bz 2.5G/5G BASE-T Task Force; and Peter Jones, principal engineer, Cisco Systems; the webinar will provide an overview of 2.5G/5G BASE-T technologies, market drivers, and standardization efforts.

Ethernet
Protocols

  • Ethernet 211:
    Data Center Convergence
    Ethernet 211: Data Center Convergence

    Join Henry He, Technical Product Manager at Ixia, and Chauncey Schwartz, Senior Technical Marketing Manager at QLogic, as they present on the current definition of convergence and data center bridging, current standards, the processes of adoption that companies use, and best practices for test methodologies. Leverage the 35+ years of experience from both Henry and Chauncey to jumpstart your knowledge of this important topic.

  • Ethernet 311:
