Ethernet Alliance and OIDA Unite to Make Single-Lambda 100GbE a Reality

Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and
advancement of Ethernet technologies today announced it is hosting a
workshop on 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) per lambda interconnects
targeting data center networks in conjunction with the Optoelectronics
Industry Development Association (OIDA). The “100GbE
per Lambda for Data Center” workshop will be held June 12
– 13, 2014, at the San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, Calif. The
joint event aims to help identify and explore the challenges and
benefits of commercializing single-lambda 100GbE optical communications
for data center applications.
“The industry attention has been focused on refining and optimizing
‘4x25’ Ethernet – four lanes of 25GbE – for use as a bridge between
10GbE and 100GbE. It’s a viable interim solution for meeting rapidly
growing demand for greater access to higher-speed bandwidth, yet,
there’s also a long-term disadvantage to this approach: its scalability
beyond 100GbE is very limited,” said John D’Ambrosia, chairman, Ethernet
Alliance, and chief Ethernet evangelist, Dell. “Single-lane solutions
are typically the most cost-effective, therefore, the time is right to
begin building consensus around efforts to move single-lambda 100GbE
from concept to commercial reality, and with 400GbE’s standardization
now beginning in IEEE 802.3, some are looking to a 4x100 gigabit per
second (Gb/s) solution as a natural extension of what’s happening now
with 40GbE. Through events like this workshop, we can begin developing
those long-term tools that will carry us through the next phase of
100GbE’s evolution, and all the way up to terabit Ethernet.”
“OIDA is very pleased to be joining the Ethernet Alliance in the pursuit
of single-lambda 100GbE, and we are looking forward to an exciting,
productive event,” said Tom Hausken, senior industry advisor, OIDA, a
division of The Optical Society (OSA).
The collaborative two-day 100GbE per Lambda for Data Center
workshop offers a robust schedule of panel discussions and breakout
sessions led by a diverse array of industry thought leaders. Among the
speakers are representatives from OIDA, and Ethernet Alliance member
companies Broadcom Corporation; Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.;
Cisco Systems, Inc.; Dell Inc.; Finisar Corporation; Inphi Corporation;
and JDS Uniphase Corporation. Key industry analysts Jimmy Yu, Dell’Oro
Group; Sergis Mushell, Gartner, Inc.; Natarajan ‘Subu’ Subrahmanyan,
Juda Group; and Dale Murray, LightCounting LLC, will also offer
100GbE per Lambda for Data Center workshop sessions will address
topics such as the drivers behind the push for 100GbE single wavelength
technologies; related technical challenges; the 100GbE per lambda
physical layer; and how to spur needed industry investment in
single-lambda technologies. A forward-looking event, the workshop is
designed to help lay groundwork for future development, rather than
conducting standard-specific work. Attendees will gain a better
understanding of the opportunities, challenges, and benefits of
single-lambda 100GbE through meaningful dialog and dynamic discussions.
The 100GbE per Lambda for Data Center workshop is June 12 – 13,
2014, co-located with CLEO: 2014, at the San Jose Convention Center, San
Jose, Calif. For more information or to register, please visit http://bit.ly/EA_OIDA-100GLambda.

About the Ethernet Alliance
The Ethernet Alliance is a global consortium that includes system and
component vendors, industry experts, and university and government
professionals who are committed to the continued success and expansion
of Ethernet technology. The Ethernet Alliance takes Ethernet standards
to market by supporting activities that span from incubation of new
Ethernet technologies to interoperability demonstrations and education.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
