Delivering voice, video and data traffic, the latest Gigabit Ethernet solution for switches offers 10 times the performance in bandwidth and speed compared with currently deployed switching equipment, according to Agere Systems, the part's developer. In addition, it has the potential to dramatically reduce cost. The improved performance and cost could result in a migration from 10- or 100-Mbit/s Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet networks. The solution offers 48 ports, which delivers traffic at 1 Gbit/s to each end-user. This enables virtual desktop and workspace sharing applications, and the ability to seamlessly store and restore important data across the business. For more information, go to www.agere.com.
