SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Teranetics, Inc., a leading
provider of high performance Ethernet solutions, announces immediate
production availability of the company's TN1010 Ethernet 10GBASE-T PHY.
This single-chip solution is designed to support transmission of 10Gb/s
data over copper LANs. The device is used in switches, servers and storage
The TN1010 PHY supports cost-effective single and dual port NIC
implementations. The device power and size enable high density 10G switch
implementations. Compliant to the IEEE 802.3an standard, the device
operates on CAT6A/CAT7 cabling up to 100 meters and CAT6 cabling up to 55
meters. And with the inclusion of auto-negotiated multi-rate 10G/1G
support, the TN1010 completes the value proposition that makes copper UTP
the connection of choice for the data center.
"As demand increases for high density, high performance data services
combined with new drive for video services over the Internet, the need for
higher-speed network switches, routers and servers is growing," said Matt
Rhodes, chief executive officer, Teranetics. "10GBASE-T represents a
significant cost savings over more expensive optical solutions and is the
way to mainstream 10G connections for corporate and service provider data
centers and enterprise networks.
"Though some vendors have demonstrated 10GBASE-T silicon, the
Teranetics' TN1010 is the first single chip PHY for 10Gbps Ethernet over
copper," said Jag Bolaria senior analyst at the Linley Group. "With the
TN1010, Teranetics can claim leadership in this market on the basis of
integration and performance. By meeting system requirements of NIC,
switches and servers, Teranetics is establishing a strong position at OEMs
of these products."
Sampling since November 2006, the TN1010 PHY has been designed into
multiple high-volume switch, server and storage platforms.
"Neterion has worked with Teranetics to be among the first to bring
10GBASE-T NICs to the market," stated Dave Zabrowski, president and CEO of
Neterion. "Standard compliance of the TN1010 enables our customers to use
the performance advantage of the Xframe(R) family of V-NIC(TM) adapters to
scale their data centers with links up to 100 meters and assure
interoperability with multiple equipment vendors."
"As a leader in providing 10G transceiver modules to 10G switch OEM's,
Opnext knows our customers have a requirement for a pluggable BASE-T
option," said Rich Zoccollilo, Vice President and General Manager at Opnext
(OPXT), "The Teranetics 10GBASE-T PHY allowed us to develop a Xenpak module
which provides a pluggable 10G BASE-T solution for existing Ethernet

10GBASE-T (IEEE 802.3an) standard was ratified by the IEEE in June
2006. 10GBASE-T offers 10x the speed previously available over structured
twisted pair cabling that has been the backbone of LAN infrastructure for
two decades. 10GBASE-T is also easier to use and deploy and far less
expensive than 10 Gb/s connections via optical fiber or Infiniband.
10GBASE-T provides the missing piece that has been holding up wide
adoption of 10G in enterprise LANs. The Teranetics TN1010 PHY further
simplifies adoption of 10G due to its ability to connect to existing 1G
ports via its industry standard 10G/1G auto-negotiation feature.
With a 10Gbps infrastructure in place, organizations can accelerate the
adoption of bandwidth-intensive applications like high performance
computing, hi-definition video transfers and peer-to-peer services.
