IEEE Standards Association Unveils “I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3™” Contest Winner

IEEE, the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced Rahul Kar, an Information Technology (IT) student from Calcutta, India, as the winner of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3™ Facebook contest. The contest capped yearlong celebrations honoring the 40th anniversary of Ethernet and 30th anniversary of IEEE 802.3 standard by highlighting its versatility through examples of existing Ethernet deployments and visionary concepts of future applications.

Revealed during the IEEE 802.3 Interim meeting in Indian Wells, Calif., Mr. Kar’s entry depicting smart cities based on the Internet of Things was selected as the winner. It will be featured in an upcoming animated short to be premiered on the IEEE Ethernet 40th Anniversary and IEEE-SA Facebook pages on 5 February 2014. The entry will also be highlighted during an upcoming reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) with Ethernet inventor, Dr. Robert (Bob) Metcalfe, professor of innovation, Cockrell School of Engineering, University of Texas at Austin, scheduled for 12pm EST on 5 February 2014.

“It’s exciting to see Ethernet, even after 40 years, still driving change. Early personal computers used Ethernet to log into remote mainframes using TELNET and to print on laser printers using PostScript. That was back at 10 megabits per second on coax. Now we have WiFi and 100 gigabits per second on fiber. The impacts of the Internet’s evolving plumbing are felt everywhere, often surprisingly, next especially in education, energy, and healthcare,” said Bob Metcalfe. “The I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3 contest was a fun way to invite big thinking on new directions Ethernet might go in the future.”

The I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3 contest attracted submissions from all over the world including Brazil, India, the Netherlands, Nigeria, the Middle East, and North America. An array of innovative Ethernet applications and concepts like the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive and industrial Ethernet, personalized medicine, and Twitter-controlled pet care systems, among others, were featured prominently.

“Ethernet has become a cornerstone of today's real-time, connected, data-driven world and serves as a springboard for new innovations that will resonate with users around the world," said David Law, chair, IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group, and distinguished engineer, HP. "The diversity of entries in the IEEE-SA I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3 contest is a testament to Ethernet's many facets and its unique ability to adapt to any application or environment.“

IEEE-SA is hosting an Internet of Things (IoT) standards workshop on 7 March 2014 during the first IEEE World Forum on the Internet of Things (WF-IoT) in Seoul, Korea 6-8 March 2014.
