Re: use cases
Good point, if I recall correctly, by 2012 the world had created 2.8 Zettabytes of data. IDC estimates that by 2020, the world would have created 35 Zettabytes of data. This massive amount of growth in data will not fit on current Ethernet speeds.

Re: use cases
Marcia, I can see the need for ISPs to get their hands on 50 and 100 Gbe networks.

Back in 1984 the fastest your can transmitt data was 300bps (bps not mbps). Nowadays you need 1 Gbps for any serious application, and that is 3.3 million times over 30 years ago.

In another five years we'll increase our network requirements over 50 times. Yes, I believe any industry will need a boost.

Re: use cases
It has been estimated that by 2016, roughly 11 percent of the Ethernet switch market will consist of sales of 40GbE and 100GbE ports. If the demand for bandwidth cannot be met by 40GbE and 100GbE port by 2016, due to a factor such as price, then a non-IEEE solution will capture the market, if its price is right.

Re: use cases
I heard this news about Brocade announced that it is now officially joining the 25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium, yes it might lead way in cloud environment, but i guess in local enviroment 10GbE is doing good.

Jim, do you see many use cases for 25GbE outside of cloud service providers?
