      100Mb/sec Ethernet coming to a car near you?

      As more and more infotainment and crash avoidance technology gets stuffed to cars and trucks, the need for better, faster and more reliable in-car networking equipment grows. In theory at least.

      With an eye towards that concept the IEEE this week said it formed the 802.3 Single Twisted Pair 100 Mb/s Ethernet Study Group to explore the technological needs for a 100 Mb/s speed for Ethernet in automotive networking.

      CableLabs tackles DOCSIS over GPON, single PON standard

      The creation of DPoG confirms that the cable MSOs’ purported preference for EPON may not be as pronounced as conventional wisdom originally suggested. However, which technology a cable operator chooses is becoming increasingly irrelevant, it appears CableLabs believes. In operation, Knittle told the session attendees, the two technologies are doing basically the same thing: transmitting Ethernet frames.
