The 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance (10GEA) was established in order to promote standards-based 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology. The technologies behind the 10 Gigabit includes the Ethernet layer protocol, MAC frame format, Physical layer architecture and physical media such as fibers which are included in this paper.
The 10n Gigabit Ethernet standard extends the IEEE 802.3ae standard protocols to a wire speed of 10 Gbps and expands the Ethernet application space to include WAN compatible links. The 10 Gigabit Ethernet standard provides a significant increase in bandwidth while maintaining maximum compatibility with the installed base of 802.3 standard interfaces,… (More)
