Ethernet Roadmap

The industry’s only Ethernet Roadmap was created by Ethernet Alliance to provide the direction needed to navigate the numerous roads making up today’s Ethernet ecosystem. With all the new standards released by the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group and the supporting technologies, navigating today’s Ethernet has grown increasingly complex.

When looking at today’s Ethernet, the application space must be considered before the relevant speeds and solutions can be determined. The Ethernet Roadmap will help users plot their path through the myriad of rates and solutions available today. Ethernet nomenclature is explained, as well as technical reference material that will help users understand how Ethernet is achieving 100GbE, 200GbE, and 400GbE. The map is beautifully drawn and packed full of information.

The roadmap is broken into two parts:

  • A two-sided, illustrated map that illustrates the speeds and application spaces on the front side and the Ethernet ecosystem and technologies on the backside. This map is available in as well as a folded, printed map that will be given away at various Ethernet Alliance events. The map has enough resolution to print on a 24” x 36” poster.
  • A zip folder that holds all the individual graphics. Click here to download the zip folder with all Roadmap Graphics.

Free copies of the folded map will be given away at various Ethernet Alliance events and panel sessions throughout the year.
