[802.3_DIALOG] IEEE 802 Tutorial: Cut-Through Forwarding (CTF) among Ethernet

Dear colleagues,

I wanted to inform you that an IEEE 802 Tutorial on 'Cut-Through Forwarding (CTF) among Ethernet networks' will take place on Wednesday 7th July 2021 from 14h00 to 15h20 UTC. I have provided the abstract for the tutorial below, full details including teleconference access information can be access at <>.
Best regards,



Cut-Through Forwarding (CTF) is a known method to improve the delay performance in bridged Ethernet networks and finds application in areas that require this performance.

In contrast to the store-and-forward operation, CTF allows frame transmission in bridges before reception is completed. Although not standardized in IEEE 802, CTF is already implemented in commercial products. It is therefore technically feasible, and standardizing CTF in IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 would enable interoperable implementations.

This tutorial introduces CTF on a technical level, explains application areas, markets and use-cases for CTF, and addresses aspects of standardizing CTF in IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3.

This tutorial has been developed within the IEEE 802 Nendica CTF Study Item.
