Optical Gigabit Ethernet Becomes IEEE Standard
KDPOF provides Gigabit Ethernet over POF connectivity according to the IEEE 802.3bvTM Specification
KDPOF – leading supplier for automotive gigabit connectivity over POF (Plastic Optical Fiber) – welcomes IEEE’s publication of the new standard amendment for 1000 Mb/s Ethernet operation over plastic optical fiber. As an amendment to the IEEE 802.3™ standard, IEEE Std 802.3bvTM for gigabit Ethernet over POF defines physical layer specifications and management parameters for automotive, industrial, and home networking applications utilizing POF. “Increasingly, automotive and industrial networks are migrating towards Ethernet,” stated Bob Grow, chair, IEEE P802.3bv Gigabit Ethernet Over Plastic Optical Fiber Task Force. “With POF already in use in automobiles and other vehicles, IEEE 802.3bv provides a robust and reliable media option for Ethernet automotive networks.”
