ADC will support the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) recently ratified 802.3ba standard that represents advancement in emerging technologies. The standard is “the first specification that supports both 100 GbE and 40 GbE throughput speeds over fiber-optic cables for telecom carriers and enterprise data centers,” says the press release.

Carriers and data centers are preparing for next-generation 100 Gbps
and 40 Gbps Ethernet technologies to support the growing internet
traffic volumes and surging demands. ADC says it has prepared its fiber
optic portfolio to handle the new speeds so customers can take
advantage of the solutions.

"The move to 100 GbE technology will drive an exponential expansion in
throughput capacity for carriers and data center operators, over time
replacing the existing 10 Gb and 1 Gb Ethernet connections that are in
place today," said Jaxon Lang, vice president of global connectivity
solutions, ADC. "With 100 GbE technology, providers will be able to
move the equivalent of a full-length DVD movie in less than a second
over a single channel of a single fiber-optic connection.”
