A somewhat abridged version of the first four reports below (vendor visits 2000, next generation campus LAN design, gigabit network design issues, and gigabit ethernet jumbo frames) as a

report. Read the travel report from vendor visits 2000 first.
Useful background for high-speed network design
Gigabit network design issues
. Minimizing latency and allowing big MTUs matter. High-speed networks must be nearly lossless, and need enough buffering to cope with huge bandwidth*delay.
Gigabit ethernet jumbo frames
. What are jumbo frames, and why should you care?
Why don't most users see high performance?
A slide show illustrating these issues.
