<p>Through the Datacenter Bridging task group, IEEE will add four supplements to the 802.1 standard that will both close the performance gap between Ethernet and InfiniBand and make the converged network a reality. In a converged network, all applications use a single physical infrastructure, which is ideal for the emerging next generation of data centers.</p>
