Terabit Ethernet

Terabit Ethernet is Ethernet transmission at one trillion bits per second (1 Tbps). True Terabit Ethernet is a future technology; however, in the meantime, Terabit Ethernet generally refers to Ethernet above 100 Gbps. The IEEE 802.3bs task force has defined 200 Gigabit (200GBASE) and 400 Gigabit Ethernet (400GBASE), which are expected to be commonly deployed by carriers and large enterprises by 2020. See 100 Gigabit Ethernet and Ethernet.
