Ethernet group creates university program
Ethernet Alliance formed the Ethernet Alliance University Program (EAUP), a global initiative to help universities and educational organizations within the Ethernet Alliance to work with industry leaders, acquire practical perspectives of academic theories, and help foster Ethernet growth.
As members of the EAUP, universities and educational organizations will participate in IEEE 802 Ethernet and Ethernet Alliance activities, such as interoperability events and technology demos, contribute research studies on existing and emerging IEEE 802 Ethernet technologies, and provide university students hands-on experiences in working with Ethernet technologies. In turn, Ethernet Alliance member companies will enjoy the benefit of access to some of the best and brightest students from leading universities as resources for Ethernet activities.
Brad Booth, president of Ethernet Alliance, says EAUP will infuse academic theories with real-world perspectives and “help the Ethernet Alliance continue to increase our membership and membership participation, and facilitate university and commercial cooperation.” Ethernet Alliance, created to promote industry awareness, acceptance, and advancement of technology and products based on existing and emerging IEEE 802 Ethernet standards, is based in Mountain View, CA.
