The Time is Now for Moving to 25GbE

There’s never been a better time to adopt 25GbE, both from a technology and an economic perspective.

It’s no secret that broader technology shifts require substantially more network bandwidth. Just to name a few, these include:

  • Virtualization in all its forms – server, storage, network, desktop
  • Increasing use of and demand for video/streaming
  • IoT requiring near real-time response rates across the network
  • Numerous and varied cloud architectures
  • New infrastructure options such as multi-core processing, NVMe, PCIe 3.0 and high speed flash storage need increased throughput

As organizations push more traffic into their enterprise and private data centers, and with bigger “pipes” coming into the enterprise, more bandwidth is also required as data moves down across the fabric or top-of-rack switches (ToR). The bulk of today’s data center top-of-rack (ToR) switches support 10GbE connections in the rack and connect to higher speed 40/100GbE fabrics. The next step in the evolution is for in-rack connectivity to move from 10GbE to 25GbE and for fabric uplinks to move from 40GbE to 100GbE.

The Economic Advantages of 25GbE at the Top-Of-Rack

The availability of 25GbE switches and adapters has changed the economics of upgrading server-to-switch connectivity. New 25GbE chips use the same class of cables as 10GbE but deliver 2.5 times the performance, while using the same number of lanes as 10GbE on the ASIC chip. That means 25GbE switches can be produced very cost-effectively.
