Introduction

As a key member of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance, Cisco is leading the initiative to accelerate the introduction of 10 Gigabit Ethernet to the networking community. 10 Gigabit Ethernet will provide:

  • High bandwidth
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Scalability from 10 Mbps to 10,000 Mbps

Deployment of 10 Gigabit Ethernet includes:
  • Very high-speed connections between buildings, campuses and PoPs
  • Aggregation of multiple 1000BASE-X or 1000BASE-T segment into 10 Gigabit Ethernet downlinks
  • Links between switches and servers
  • Server interconnect for clusters of servers
