re gige:

As long as we're discussing reading material, the July 2001 Cook report
contains two good interviews on Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) with Howard
Frazier [ex-Cisco, now-Dominet] and WorldWidePacket's Jonathan Thatcher.

10 gige is discussed sporadically throughout, along with three variations of
outside plant (Ethernet over UTP, P-P Fiber, and P-MP Fiber PONs, or EPONs)
with implications to the greater 'Net's backbone, and other architectural
opportunities/implications.

Off Topic, kinda... check out the caption at the bottom of this page:

The tutorial isn't bad, either ;)

IEEE standards web page at http://grouper.ieee.org is quite helpful
for finding the status of the various standards.

In particular, check

http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/3/ae/public/mar01/minutes_0301.pdf

for the minutes of the last IEEE 802.3ae Working Group meeting.

Target for completion is 1Q 2002.

At this point, much of the work has been completed, I believe that
all of the outstanding issues were resolved at the meeting and they
have gone to working group ballot (don't ask me about all the details
of the IEEE decision making process, but they are online).

So at least things are close enough that chip sets are being developed
and equipment vendors can get underway with confidence that there
won't be too much change, such that standards compliant products
should be available about in the same timeframe that the standard
is completed.

Anybody out there have any experience with 10 gigabit ethernet?

I don't think the 10GEA has standarized the draft. It is slated for
mid
2002.
But some vendors might have non-standard implementations, but I am not
aware of
it.

Here is an article that states that IntelliSpace and others are already
using 10 Gigabit Ethernet equipment provided by Extreme Networks.  It is
skimpy on the details.

I'm trolling to see if anybody in the nanog crowd was willing or able
(NDAs and all) to tell us about any 10 gige equipment they might be
using.
