This intellectual property is at the core of the Force10 TeraScale E-Series backplane, which has been tested to support up to four 100 Gigabit
Ethernet ports per slot.
With the introduction of our unmanaged gigabit
switches, we continue too affordably provide the technology that today and tomorrow's networks require.
Internet exchanges around the world are using the Force10 TeraScale E-Series at the core of their networks to deliver resilient Gigabit
and 10 Gigabit
Ethernet services to their customers.
The ARROW-2xGE provides a direct interface to PMC-Sierra's PM5381 S/UNI-2488 (SONET framer) to provide a two chip solution for two channels of serial Gigabit
Ethernet to serial OC-48 (see figure 1).
While the service provider ecosystem is increasingly adopting 10 Gigabit
Ethernet as a cost-effective and scalable replacement of legacy technologies, existing networks rely predominantly on SONET/SDH technology.
Engineering excellence and dedicated customer service distinguish Vitesse as an industry leader in Gigabit
Ethernet LAN, Ethernet-over-SONET, Advanced Switching, Fiber Channel, Serial Attached SCSI, Optical Transport, and other applications.
11n standard that provides speeds much greater than Fast Ethernet can support, large-scale deployments of Gigabit
Ethernet will also become more prevalent as Fast Ethernet will not be able to sustain with the increased bandwidth demands of 802.
Designed to ensure line-rate connectivity between servers with data streams that exceed more than one Gigabit
per second and the network core, the Force10 high density card enables True to lay the foundation for its next generation services by deploying 10 Gigabit
Ethernet at the network edge that can scale from four Gigabits
per second per port up to 10 Gigabits
Force10 Networks is the pioneer in building and securing 10 Gigabit

In addition to extremely low switching latency, the Force10 S2410 is the industry's only fixed configuration switch to deliver 24 line-rate 10 Gigabit
Ethernet ports, triple the density of competitive solutions.
Adoption of Gigabit
Ethernet has been driven by customer requirements and technology capabilities, largely fueled by the so-called Triple Play and the increasing bandwidth requirements associated with converged data, voice and video applications.
