VECS 2024: KDPOF Presents First Implementation of IEEE Std 802.3cz

From May 14 to 15, 2024, we will show our optical multi-gigabit automotive Ethernet demo at VECS 2024 – Vehicle Electronics & Connected Services Conference – in Gothenburg, Sweden. This year’s theme is “Shaping the Future of the Transportation Landscape”. At stand C04:12, we’ll display our first implementation compliant to IEEE Std 802.3cz. The demo setup operates in multimode multi-gigabit with 2 plates of multimode fiber 10GBASE-AU.

VECS will bring together the automotive community to share ideas, insights, and inspiration. At the event, you can learn more about the latest innovations, the industry landscape plus benchmark yourselves and show presence among 1500+ peers. Established industry experts, renowned organizations, and agile start-ups will discuss the best use cases regarding process and organizational aspects for a profitable use of new technologies.

We’re looking forward to exchanging experiences and ideas. How are other OEMs coping with the shift to central computer architecture, where the vehicle becomes much more software-based? How do manufacturers tackle the commercial transformation where digitization changes the way that they market & sell their products and also interact with customers?
