Faster Ethernet  

Famed V-Ratter Registered

For those who want a faster LAN this is the v1.00 spec of 800Gb/s Ethernet, it’s just been published so products not yet available.

Its something for the likes of Google and other large “Cloud” providers, it just a leap from the early Xerox Thick Ethernet at 10Mb/s with taps on the half inch coax only allowed at nodes along the cable each with an expensive tap. I used to install that type many years ago.


The “Ethernet Technology Consortium” is the new name for the “25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium”

Ah yes, "Thicknet" cabling and "vampire taps", complete with their own AUI. We had that at TC for one of the early Sport data systems back in the 80s. I remember it well.
