2013 Technology Exploration Forum (TEF 2013)


Upcoming Events

Photonics for Disaggregated Data Centers
With increasingly challenging demands being placed on data centers, to perform many complex computational or network operations in addition to serving end users, there is growing pressure to find innovative low cost, efficient architectures. One approach is to move away from a host or servers based architecture and instead organize the various computing, memory, storage, and networking resources for maximum efficiency. This often means pooling common resources into central locations or realizing the data center as a supercomputer model. This approach can also be used to maximize application efficiency by taking advantage of the modularity of dis‐aggregation and choosing and / or updating resources that best meet the specific requirement.

The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, unveiled details of the agenda for its upcoming 2013 Technology Exploration Forum (TEF 2013) scheduled for 15-16 October 2013 at the Network Meeting Center in Silicon Valley’s TechMart. At TEF 2013, “The Future of Ethernet”, Ethernet industry leaders, stakeholders, and industry visionaries like Ethernet inventor Robert (Bob) Metcalfe, will discuss Ethernet’s path forward. Pioneered by the Ethernet Alliance in order to help develop and facilitate Ethernet industry consensus, these events unite various stakeholders in discussions of the latest developments, new opportunities, and emerging challenges.

Participants serve as a de facto technology advisory board for the Ethernet community, and engage in a free-flowing dialog and exchange of ideas that help set the direction and drive industry activity.
