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.

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

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
