Navigating the Road to Terabit Ethernet
When I look back on my career, it was always about fiber:
how to use it, where to use it, when to plan for more of it. That’s where
useful tools like the Ethernet roadmap come in handy.
Created by the Ethernet
Alliance, the roadmap shows where we are now in terms of speed, and where
we’re likely to be in five, 10, 15 years from now. It shows where we focus our
attention and how to meet the challenges of growing bandwidth demand. The
roadmap can be a great tool for businesses to chart a path forward and get in
sync with the people developing applications for mobile users around the world.

When CommScope developed its
high speed migration platform, we kept the Ethernet roadmap in mind. We use it, abide by it, show it to customers. The road to terabit Ethernet is long and winding, but it is indeed on the horizon. It requires a fresh look, a new way of doing things.
