Ethernet Alliance Experts Introduce 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet


The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, today announced details of its next webinar, "Ethernet 104: Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet". The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, May 21 2015, at 10am PDT.

WHAT: The Ethernet 104: Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet webinar will provide attendees with an in-depth introduction to Next Generation Enterprise Access (NGEA) 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet. Presented by John D'Ambrosia, chairman, Ethernet Alliance, and chief Ethernet evangelist, Dell; Dave Chalupsky, chair, Ethernet Alliance BASE-T Subcommittee, network hardware architect, Intel, and chair, IEEE P802.3bz 2.5G/5G BASE-T Task Force; and Peter Jones, principal engineer, Cisco Systems; the webinar will provide an overview of 2.5G/5G BASE-T technologies, market drivers, and standardization efforts.

WHEN: Presented at 10am PDT on May 21, 2015, Ethernet 104: Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet includes a 45-minute presentation followed by a short Q&A period. The webinar is offered free of charge to both Ethernet Alliance members and the general public. It will also be available for future on-demand viewing at the Ethernet Alliance website.

Additional information is available, and registration is now open at

WHO: Anyone interested in the advancement of BASE-T, the foundational technology for Ethernet enterprise access or interested in the deployment of the next generation of Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11ac™) will benefit from attending the Ethernet 104: Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet webinar.

WHY: Ethernet 104: Introduction to 2.5G/5G BASE-T Ethernet will help attendees gain greater understanding of and prepare for the transition of basic network access speeds.

"The proliferation of wireless access points is driving data volumes to new highs. Since 2003, some 70 billion meters of Cat 5e and Cat 6 cabling have been sold. Pursuing higher data rates, such as 2.5G/5G, combined with the deployment of next-generation wireless technologies will enable customers to extract maximum value from their infrastructure investments, which can not support 10GbE," said Mr. D'Ambrosia. "With Ethernet's growing diversity, there's considerable market pressure for a flexible, cost-effective solution and new speeds between Gigabit and 10 Gigabit. This webinar will help attendees gain a clearer picture of why the time is right for the industry to unite behind a single BASE-T standard."
