Fibre Channel hits key landmark on the way to 32Gbps

Stephen Lawson | Dec. 4, 2013
The specification for the next standard is finished, though products may not ship until 2016

Even higher speed is on tap for Fibre Channel soon after the 32G bps standard, FCIA's Jones said. Within the next several months, the standards committee is expected to complete a standard for 128G bps that will combine four 32G bps lanes into a single connection, he said.

In addition to higher performance, the new specification will also include the first standardized forward error correction for Fibre Channel, according to FCIA's Jones. Forward error correction is a system for predicting transmit errors and correcting them without the need for retransmission.
