Ethernet Alliance ECOC 2022 demo highlights 100-800GbE interoperability, flexibility

Sept. 19, 2022
With the advent of the IEEE Std 802.3ck 100Gb/s electrical specification, next generation Ethernet products for 100GbE, 200GbE, 400GbE, and 800GbE are becoming a reality for today’s high-speed interconnect applications.

The Ethernet Alliance (EA) has unveiled its latest multivendor interoperability demonstration at the 2022 European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2022) event (Sept 18-22) in Basel, Switzerland. The consortium's display in its ECOC booth #715 encompasses next-generation, innovative interconnect technologies from stakeholders across the entire Ethernet technology ecosystem.

“The Ethernet Alliance interoperability demonstration at ECOC 2022 further highlights the interdependencies of the Ethernet ecosystem and the need for heightened specification conformance from all its participants. With the advent of the IEEE Std 802.3ck 100Gb/s electrical specification, next generation Ethernet products for 100GbE, 200GbE, 400GbE, and 800GbE are becoming a reality for today’s applications and setting up the roadmap for future higher speed Ethernet. Demonstrating interoperability between all components in the market continues to reinforce Ethernet’s inherent flexibility and shows why it persists as the foundation of networking globally.” -- David J. Rodgers, events chair, Ethernet Alliance, and senior business development manager, EXFO

Representing a diverse array of industry pacesetters, this year’s Ethernet Alliance ECOC interoperability demo is the centerpiece of the consortium's interactive exhibit. As reckoned by EA, the ECOC interoperability demo features the latest in high-speed interconnect technology innovation, including optics with 400 Gigabits per second (Gb/s) and 800 Gb/s overall interconnect capacity.

Additionally, the display showcases state-of-the-art switches, routers, interconnects and cabling, and test and measurement solutions, all operating across a range of Ethernet speeds, from 25 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) to 400GbE. It also incorporates a simulation of high-speed, high density, real-world traffic, emphasizing Ethernet’s proven reliability and capacity for adapting to the rapidly evolving applications landscape.

Among the Ethernet Alliance members participating in the consortium's ECOC interoperability demo are Amphenol Corporation (NYSE: APH); EXFO; Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC); Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR); TE Connectivity Ltd. (NYSE: TEL); Tektronix, Inc.; and Teledyne LeCroy, Inc. (NYSE: TDY).
