Mentor Graphics recently acquired the complete line of Ethernet
and media access control (MAC) IP group from Alcatel, the industry leader for Ethernet
IP, used in 80% of the 10/100 Mbit/s ports and over 50% of the Gigabit Ethernets
ports shipping worldwide.
Even as FC networking standards solidify and improve, Ethernet
standards will continue to be refined, maintaining Ethernet
's technological superiority.
Its members -including telecommunications service providers, network equipment/software manufacturers, semiconductors vendors and testing organizations - play an active role in standardizing wide-area Ethernet
networking, as well as helping drive equipment and service certification programs and being among the first participants.
Power consumption is less than 2 watts/port, which offers over 50% power savings over low-density Gigabit Ethernet
solutions that use discrete SERDES, Gigabit Ethernet
Media Access Controllers (MAC), SONET mapper and FPGA devices.
Our targeted customers require our services to be as resilient as SONET services, but at a price/performance value that only Ethernet
solutions can bring.
SCinet features a 10Gb iWARP Ethernet
infrastructure, which includes hardware from leading vendors together with OpenFabrics software and supporting services.
We've been watching with great interest as the vendor community, led by NetEffect, developed iWARP Ethernet
