Ethernet Alliance Higher Speed Networking Plugfest to Include Spectra7

Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. has revealed its involvement in the Ethernet Alliance Higher Speed Networking Plugfest, focusing on port data rates from 25 Gbps to 800 Gbps. The weeklong event, starting on December 4, 2023, at the Intel Campus in Hillsboro, Oregon, offers an opportunity for Ethernet Alliance members, equipment manufacturers, and test and measurement professionals to enhance the interoperability of their solutions through testing.

Ethernet Alliance plugfests are proven to bring together the always-expanding Ethernet ecosystem to quickly meet the market’s growing appetite for robust and dependable connectivity and swiftly deliver upon the promise and benefits of the next generation of Ethernet speeds. The testing matrix for the December plugfest encompasses technologies based on both recently completed and soon-to-be-ratified standards. Among equipment to be tested during the December event are Ethernet physical layer transceivers (PHYs); network interface controllers (NICs); switches; test and measurement solutions, and an array of optical and copper media at speeds of 25, 50, 100, 200, 400 and 800 Gbps.

“Cables using our GaugeChangerTM technology offer significant cost, size and energy consumption value to the Ethernet community,” said Spectra7 CEO Raouf Halim. “We are participating in the Ethernet Alliance Higher Speed Plugfest to help educate its members and the broader Ethernet community about our unique active copper cable solutions and ensure broad interoperability.”
