Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Well, almost… 32GFC is fixed and at the standard has been ratified and the physical specs are moulded in concrete. In addition to this there are functions that enable to combine 4 of these into a single 128Gb link. Yes 128Gb/s. That’s fast….Ohhh wait… thats only ONE WAY which means a single link can push 256Gb/s in total. That allows you to push 25600MB per second through a link. In order to achieve these transmission speeds there has been a somewhat restructuring on the individual requirements w.r.t. quality of the actual link.
