[VIDEO] Don't Bet Against Ethernet

In an exclusive video interview at the Interop conference this week, John D'Ambrosia, Chairman of the Ethernet Alliance, showed off what makes Ethernet work and why it's not just a best-efforts technology anymore.

The IEEE defines standards. The Ethernet Alliance helps make the standards work.

"The mission of the Ethernet Alliance is to speed up the adoption of Ethernet technologies," D'Ambrosia said. "Speaking as someone that works in the IEEE, reality is that when I'm done, there is a 300-500 page document, and that's not the same thing as technology."

D'Ambrosia said it's very hard to show someone a standard and say it works, but that's precisely what the Ethernet Alliance does, as demonstrated at Interop.
