ISRAEL: Tehuti Networks, a fabless semiconductor company focused on enabling mass adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), has announced the industry’s smallest 10GbE adapter with integrated 10GBase-T support.
Designed to support high-volume OEM systems, such as low-end servers and storage systems, and high-performance desktop applications, the TN9210 Network Adapter offers a low-power, small form factor and low-cost 10GbE solution enabling 10GBase-T connectivity.
The TN9210 Network Adapter hosts the latest Tehuti TN4010 controller, an optimized 10GbE controller designed for low-power, low-cost, single-port applications required in application servers, high-end workstations and personal computers.
The TN4010 MAC is paired with the Marvell Alaska 88X3120 transceiver, a single-port, low-power, high-performance 10GbE PHY, to enable tri-speed connectivity (10GBase-T, 1000Base-T and 100Base-TX) over low-cost standard CAT-6a Ethernet cabling, supporting up to 100m. (Cat-5e and CAT-6 are supported compliant to link segment specifications.)
“Industry analysts forecast ubiquitous 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments across enterprises driven by the latest 10GbE controller and 10GBase-T PHY-based solutions, which provide significant power and cost efficiencies in addition to a seamless 10-fold performance enhancement,” said Moshe Shahaf, chairman and CEO, Tehuti Networks. “We are pleased to offer the TN9210 as a critical enabler for this important industry transformation.”
“We are pleased that Tehuti Networks has chosen the Marvell Alaska 88X3120 10GBase-T PHY for their TN9210 Network Adapter, as it enables seamless migration of existing gigabit Ethernet (GbE) networking, available on every workstation and network appliance, to 10GBase-T connectivity – providing an order of magnitude boost in performance at very low power and cost levels,” said LK Bhupathi, senior director of technical marketing, Cloud Services and Infrastructure (CSI) Business Unit, Marvell Semiconductor.
