The article focuses on the scope of 100 Gigabit Ethernet standard. The author specifically refers to the views of Joe Lawrence, the principal architect at fibre optic wide area network provider Level 3. It is stated that the year 2010 is important for Lawrence because it is the likely ratification date for the 100 Gigabit Ethernet standard, which will let network managers deliver 100Gbits of traffic through a single port. The last big increase in Ethernet speeds happened in 2002, with the ratification of the 10 Gigabit standard. However, the internet never stands still, and traffic volumes are increasing substantially.
