Ethernet Alliance completes interoperability test for EEE Std. 802.3azTM-2010 energy efficient Ethernet


The Ethernet Alliance announced its  successful Energy Efficient Ethernet subcommittee interoperability plugfest for products designed to support IEEE Std. 802.3azTM 2010 Energy Efficient Ethernet.


There were six Ethernet Alliance members including Broadcom
Corporation, Intel, LSI, Marvell Technology Group, Qualcomm Atheros and Vitesse


This is the second such interoperability event hosted by
the Ethernet Alliance; the first event was held in April of 2010. Holding this
second event shows the increased market adoption of the EEE standard.


The Energy Efficient Ethernet standard, technology, and
products reinforce Ethernet as a ubiquitous and green connectivity technology.
Sponsoring the EEE interoperability event allowed the Ethernet Alliance to
support the market transition to EEE,” said Crystal Black, Ethernet Alliance
Marketing Chair.


I am pleased to see these member companies taking the
lead in network energy-efficiency through their participation in the plugfest,”
said Mike Bennett, senior network engineer at Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory and Chair of the IEEE 802.3az Task Force.


Demonstrating interoperability paves the way for future
innovation using IEEE 802.3az-2010 as it proves the features simply work when a
network is built, which is something end users expect from Ethernet technology.


The Ethernet Alliance recently unveiled
details of its new educational webinar series.


Led by real-world practitioners and industry experts, the
series will deliver practical information and expertise about Ethernet
technology developments, trends, and challenges.
