25 Gigabit Ethernet

A proposed standard for Ethernet at 25 gigabits per second by the 25G Ethernet Consortium and IEEE 802.3by task force, which also includes 50 Gbits/sec. Designed as the next jump from 10 Gigabit Ethernet, the 25 and 50 Gbit speeds are even divisions of 100 Gbits/sec. In the future, migrating to 100 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) from 25 or 50 GbE is expected to be considerably more economical than migrating from 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40 GbE). See 100 Gigabit Ethernet.
