100 Gigabit Ethernet

(redirected from 100 Gbe)

100 Gigabit Ethernet

An Ethernet standard that transmit at 100 gigabits per second (100 Gbps). Officially, the IEEE 802.3bm-2015 standard, which defines 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100 GbE) and also 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40 GbE) over fiber cables. The 40 Gbe is designed for use within the organization between servers and the Ethernet switch, while 100 GbE is geared to long-distance switch-to-switch transmission.

Multiple Lanes
For 100 GbE, the modulation scheme breaks 100 Gbps into four 25 Gbps data lanes by first splitting the 100 into two polarized streams, each of which is then modulated into two 25 Gbps streams. See 25 Gigabit Ethernet, Terabit Ethernet and Ethernet.

TE described the QSFP form factor as today's industry workhorse for delivering 40 and 100 GbE. The Q is for quad--a nod to the four-channel electrical interface, with each lane running at 25 Gb/s for 100 GbE, the company explained.
This is just the start, however, given the IEEE P802.3cd project, which is leveraging the 50 Gb/s lane rates as it introduces 50 GbE, as well as new physical layer specifications for 100 GbE and 200 GbE for backplanes, copper cables, and multi-mode fiber, while introducing a single lane 100 GbE 500 m SMF solution.
As a result, operators can reduce OpEx and CapEx in metro edge, regional, and core applications via more efficient, high-density Ethernet service aggregation and transport (1GbE, 10GbE, 100GbE), as well as with improved optimization of 100 GbE router port hand- offs.
Daman also utilised R&M's OM3 fibre-optic cabling for fibre backbone connectivity which is suitable for the current 10GbE application requirements and will also allow the insurance specialist to migrate seamlessly to 40 GbE and even 100 GbE.
