Good luck with the IEEE efforts John. I know our standards guy Pete Anslow agrees with you that 400GbE is the logical next step, as he detailed here: http://www.ciena.com/connect/blog/400GbE-versus-Terabit-Ethernet-First-steps-toward-an-answer.html

400 GbE is the only number that makes sense, we will not be able to do a Terabit...and even for 400 GbE it will have to be a parallel I/O interface, a serial 400 GHz driver is not in cards in CMOS...Kris

I heard Chris Cole of Finisar propose this data rate at an Ethernet Alliance event about two years ago. Made sense then, makes sense now.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
