Dr. Ali Abaye, senior director, product marketing for Broadcom’s Infrastructure and Networking Group told Enterprise Networking Planet that the MGBASE-T alliance is not associated with the Cisco-led NGBASE-T alliance, thought the two efforts have similar goals. Both groups are aiming to help create and support a new Ethernet standard that bridges the gap between existing 1 Gigabit Ethernet networking gear and 10 Gigabit Ethernet equipment.
Abaye noted that the MGBASE-T Alliance is fully aligned with IEEE efforts which are currently in the study group phase for 2.5 and 5 Gbps.
