When you look at the evolution of networking and the data that drives it, there is no surprise that the pressure on the data center to manage data quality and transmission speed continues to grow. Consumers and creators of the data want to control the flow and have fast access to it 24/7 without compromising quality. Networking systems have evolved to support the massive growth of data. Ethernet has been and will continue to be the most widely used network interface. Figure 1 highlights some of the key milestones that have led to the creation of Ethernet in the connected world.
