MicrosemiとAquantiaは共同でマルチレート(1G/2.5G/5G/10G) イーサネットスイッチのリファレンス・プラットフォームを発表

Interop ITX ブース#317 (米国ラスベガス2017/5/15~19開催)にて最新マルチレート・ギガビットイーサネットスイッチ ソリューションのデモンストレーションを実施

Microsemi社とAquantia社は共同で1G/2.5G/5G/10Gの新しいマルチレート・イーサネットスイッチのリファレンス・プラットフォームを発表しました。
昨今のWi-Fi端末の急激な増加や、IEEE802.11ac、 IEEE802.11ac Wave 2 といった高帯域の無線ネットワーク構築が予想される今、現行のギガビットイーサネットを上回る転送レートが求められています。
この状況下において、既存のケーブルをそのまま流用でき、置き換え時のコストが抑えられる2.5GレートのイーサネットがNBASE-Tにより規格化され、次世代のトレンドとして注目されています。
本リファレンス・プラットフォームデザインでは、エンタープライズアクセスルータ、WLANアクセスポイント・スイッチのようなエンタープライズインフラストラクチャに最適化され、24 Portx2.5GE、4 Port x 2.5G/5G/10G(マルチレートポート)の構成が可能となります。

Microsemi and Aquantia Announce Production-Ready Multi-Rate Switch Reference Platform
New Optimized Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Solution to be Demonstrated at Interop ITX May 15-19 in Booth #317

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, and Aquantia Corp., a pioneer and market leader in high-speed Ethernet connectivity solutions for data centers, enterprise infrastructure and client connectivity, today announced a production-ready multi-rate switch reference platform optimized to support 24x2.5G and up to additional four 2.5G/5G/10G BASE-T ports. The solution—which combines Microsemi's SparX-IV L2/L3 enterprise switch, VSC7448; Linux SMBStaX software; clock management; PD69208M Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) power sourcing equipment (PSE) manager and Aquantia's second generation multi-rate IEEE™802.3bz PHY, AQR409—will be demonstrated by Microsemi in the NBASE-T Alliance booth, #317, at Interop ITX in Las Vegas May 15-19, 2017.

"The new multi-rate switch reference platform provides Microsemi customers a complete hardware and software solution that can be readily taken to the market, as Aquantia's PHY application program interface (API) and firmware have been integrated into Microsemi's Linux-based application software suites, including CEServices, SMBStaX and WebStax," said Larry O'Connell, director of product marketing for Microsemi's Ethernet Networking Technology (ENT) group. "Additionally the solution combines Microsemi PoE and low jitter clock solutions with our Ethernet switch and software technologies, providing our customers a single source for their Ethernet networking needs."
