Panel description: Why Ethernet? Why now?
Ethernet has become the most ubiquitous method for networking computers and peripherals today! Not only is Ethernet used in high speed applications in enterprise data centers, cloud providers and service providers, it is also used in industrial and building automation and even automobiles. Ethernet’s many operating speeds and various interconnects make it ideal for what appears to be a diverse set of technologies, however they all share the same need to transfer data from device to device safely and securely.  In addition, Ethernet’s configurability from 1Gb/s to 400Gb/s lends itself quite nicely to the broad spectrum of application spaces it is now used in. With the coming of newest 400Gb/S and 800Gb/s speeds and latest form factors, Ethernet’s continued advancement is ensured.
