A 10GbE WAN PHY link from the 10GEA demonstration network is fed into the XENON platform and is then connected to the Force10 Networks' receive link.
In preparation for the interoperability demonstration, the 10GEA
hosted a hot stage last week at Key3Media's NetWorld+Interop hot stage facilities in Belmont, California.
The 10GEA was founded in January 2000 by seven industry leading networking companies and has since achieved several milestones in the advancement of 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology and products.
Our active involvement in the 10GEA supports the company's continued commitment to accelerate the development, deployment and assurance of next-generation network technology around the world.
The members of the 10GEA have united together to promote the acceptance of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and the adoption of universally accepted product standards within the IEEE committee.
As a member of the 10GEA, we are contributing our part in evangelizing the power of Ethernet with 10 Gigabit Ethernet and its applications in the LAN, MAN and WAN," continued Johnson.
