Consumer Communications Workstream
Consumer communications is important to provide improved, secure and reliable connectivity for data intensive applications like UAV, gaming, media, AR/VR, web based intensive applications. Consumer communication is not only about embracing and defining new technologies, but also about embracing the new perceptions/ realities towards consumers as well.
The goal of the workstream is to provide connectivity to the evolving higher throughput, lower latency applications. See below for some of the activities and standards this practice is working on to help grow the ecosystem of invested stakeholders and reach our goals.
IEEE 802 Network Enhancements for the Next Decade
The goal of this activity is to assess, outside of the IMT activity, emerging requirements for IEEE 802 wireless and higher-layer communication infrastructures, identify commonalities, gaps, and trends not currently addressed by IEEE 802 standards and projects, and facilitate building industry consensus towards proposals to initiate new standards development efforts.
IEEE launches 802.3™ Beyond 400Gb/s Ethernet Study Group to Define Next High Speed Threshold for Ethernet Data Rate
With bandwidth demand growing across all areas of Ethernet connectivity globally, the IEEE 802.3™ Beyond 400Gb/s Ethernet Study Group will explore initiating a new IEEE project that would standardize capabilities exceeding today’s maximum data rate of 400 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) for IEEE 802.3™, IEEE Standard for Ethernet.
