Copper, multimode fiber and single-mode fiber PHYs will be developed for all three Ethernet rates.
It’s worth noting that the success of IEEE 802 standards has always been based on their open, transparent, inclusive development process conducted by IEEE-SA, with full participation by industry. These latest IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group projects will address the increasing needs for speeds and reach targeted at specific applications, and help ensure best practices are implemented through the principles of standardization.
If you're an IT executive eyeing your technology roadmap, rest assured that industry participants are working to address your needs and we now have timetables for the delivery of standards that will enable the solutions you need in your toolkit.
