Communications chip manufacturers, NEMs, cloud service providers, carriers and service providers, hyperscale and large enterprise data centers, financial, and storage network organizations must adopt and deploy new Ethernet speeds like the fast-emerging 400GE and 200GE, plus new implementations of 100GE and 50GE. There is a tremendous amount of new product development occurring between 2015 and 2020 to meet the bandwidth demand. Now, we are right in the middle of this period, and new chip makers are coming to market, introducing high-performance products. There is no longer just one or two primary suppliers of communications chips and devices. Read this white paper to understand why this is a critical time to renew efforts to compare and benchmark the performance of these new network products and devices.
