Session Abstract

As networks migrate to IP packet-based networks, transport and Ethernet data rates experience a paradigm shift. Ethernet rates historically have increased by a factor of ten and currently are defined up to 10 Gb/s. Alternatively, SONET/SDH/OTN rates, currently defined up to 40 Gb/s, traditionally increased by a factor of four. Convergence began at 10 Gb/s rate and is continuing at 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s. Emerging standards support this convergence and provide the framework for next-generation networking. Currently, 40GbE originally proposed for enterprise computing is likely to make its way into the transport network, an increase of a factor of four instead of the traditional Ethernet factor of ten. For backbone transport networks, 100 Gb/s is proposed
