Enabling Interoperability Today for Next-Generation Ethernet Solutions
Presenter: Shawn Nicholl, Director, Design Engineering, Ethernet/Interlaken Solutions, Xilinx.Inc
Tuesday, 3/10 @ 10:15am – 11:15am | TBD
A healthy and interoperable Ethernet ecosystem demands equipment suppliers to deploy high performance systems that are scalable, adaptable, and intelligent. In order to satisfy customers' insatiable demand for bandwidth, network signaling rates have grown to reach speeds that demand PAM4 modulation. As the vast majority of network traffic passes over electrical interfaces of silicon devices, the transceiver capabilities of those devices have increased to a point where the most-capable and cutting edge devices operate at 56G PAM4 and 112G PAM4 serial rates. At the same time, Ethernet applications have also expanded to include many lower rates. For improved economics, it is often beneficial for all of these rates to be supported in a single solution. Moreover, the chosen solution must interoperate with a wide mix of network peers.
This talk will provide a perspective from a network solution and silicon provider. Xilinx solutions such as Alveo accelerator cards, Versal ACAP heterogeneous compute platform, UltraScale family of FPGA devices, along with complementary software and hardware-programmable IP (Intellectual Property) provide the capabilities required to ensure interoperability across this range of highly-demanding Ethernet applications and rates. The presentation will discuss how the selection of components that are flexible in nature can help to reduce time-to-market development while providing field-upgradable solutions that continuously evolve as given protocols and applications gain wider deployment. The talk will point out the importance of contributing to the development of networking standards along with other industry members. Furthermore, there will be a reflection on in-house testing, the role of automation, and the importance of multi-vendor interoperability testing.
VersalTM ACAPs: for creators of the highest bandwidth, most secure networks
Presenter: Mike Thompson, Sr PLM - Virtex Portfolio, Xilinx.Inc
March 11 @ 11:00 am – 11:30 am | Expo Theater III – Booth #2239
For those developing next generation highest speed, secure networks targeting emerging technologies and protocols, we’ll present an overview of integrated technologies in Versal ACAP devices including 112G PAM4 transceivers, off-the-shelf Ethernet and OTN connectivity, encryption, PCIe Gen5, and large FPGA fabric that together minimize power consumption and time to market.
