Ethernet in the Field (50Gb/s Lane Rate)
This first session will cover the ongoing deployment of 50Gb/s technologies into the Ethernet ecosystem. Panelists will provide an overview of these new protocols, discussing the changes and advancements compared to previous technologies. Speakers will also cover the practical aspects of deploying a new Ethernet technology, such as infrastructure requirements, link establishment methodologies and maintaining legacy speed support, as well as interoperability challenges and common issues. We’ll include nomenclature clarifications and discuss the importance of testing along with the benefits of the ecosystem participating in the Ethernet Alliance High-Speed Networking (HSN) Plugfest.

Stay tuned for the “Ethernet in Design (100Gb/s Lane Rate)” and “Ethernet in the Future (200Gb/s Lane Rate)” sessions coming soon.

Sam Johnson
Ethernet Alliance HSN Subcommittee Co-Chair, Intel @Ethernet Alliance, Intel
Sam Johnson is the manager of the Link Applications Engineering team within Intel’s Ethernet Products Group. Sam started at Intel in 2010 with a focus on 10G Ethernet PHY debug and has built a career based on High Speed Serial Ethernet PHY and pluggable media behavior, configuration and interoperability. After working to architect and develop the infrastructure that controls the Ethernet hardware in Intel’s current generation of EPG products and IP, he went on to build the LAE team to support the link and PHY layer in these same products. The team’s responsibilities now span the EPG portfolio and range from multi-vendor interoperability testing to electrical conformance testing to delivering customized Ethernet solutions for customers. Sam’s role is focused on defining new features and implementation details for link behavior in current and future EPG products while supporting debug and interoperability testing.
