The Newly Ratified IEEE 802.3bz Ethernet Standard: What Enterprise IT Needs to Know
This IDC study discusses the recently ratified IEEE 802.3bz Ethernet standard, which represents Ethernet switch port speeds of 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps. This study analyzes the high level business case for adoption of this technology and the considerations enterprise IT must undertake to successfully deploy this technology."As DX demands that enterprises rely on a broad set of connected devices and network applications over wired and wireless networks, network access infrastructure must evolve to keep the digital enterprise running," said Nolan Greene, senior research analyst, IDC Network Infrastructure group. "IEEE 802.3bz has the potential to help enable the digital enterprise to use not only WLAN but also wired connectivity to its highest potential while deriving maximum value from the cable plant."
