Executive Summary

This paper examines 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) technology as the network architecture of choice to address requirements for increased bandwidth and reduced latency. 10GbE also provides broader opportunities for network redundancy in data center environments and other situations where these properties are essential. The paper also explores 10GbE as the technology for converging heterogeneous network fabrics in data centers and network backbones. The standard for 10GbE over fiber, 802.3ae, was approved by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association (IEEE-SA) in 2002.
