The gigabit Ethernet switch is already being deployed in large numbers in both corporate and public data networks, and has begun to move Ethernet from the region of the local area network out to encompass the metro area network. Meanwhile, an even faster 10-gigabit Ethernet standard was completion on June 2002. The main issue for 10-gigabit Ethernet switch development is the need of a new network processor that can process high-speed packets forwarding on line interface module. In this paper, we introduce a strategy for development of 10-gigabit Ethernet switch and 2 prototype products in Korea.
