The technical standards created by the IEEE 802 Local Area Networking / Metropolitan Area Network Standards Committee (LMSC) over the past 40 years have been essential in enabling suppliers of data communications components, products, systems and services to be delivered economically and at an immense scale. The vast, ubiquitous, mostly hidden, data communications infrastructure of the Internet, both wired and wireless, relies on technologies and protocols that have been specified and continually updated by a dedicated group of engineers in the IEEE 802 LMSC.

In the first of this two-part series, Paul Nikolich, the Chair of the IEEE 802 LMSC, will explore 802’s wired family of Ethernet standards, with John D’Ambrosia, who chaired the two Ethernet projects that took Ethernet from 10 Gigabit Ethernet to 100 Gigabit Ethernet to 400 Gigabit Ethernet. The breadth of the Ethernet family and its future will also be explored.
