SwitchCore Joins Newly Founded 10 Gigabit Alliance.
LUND, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 2000
SwitchCore AB (publ.), a fabless semiconductor company A fabless semiconductor company specializes in the design and sale of hardware devices implemented on semiconductor chips. It achieves an advantage by outsourcing the fabrication of the devices to a specialized semiconductor manufacturer called a semiconductor foundry or "fab. developing chips for next generation networks has become a charter member of the recently established 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance (10 GEA GEA - Graph Extended ALGOL. Extension of ALGOL 60 for graph manipulation, on UNIVAC 1108. "A Language for Treating Graphs", S. Crespi-Reghizzi et al, CACM 13(5) (May 1970). ). Among the alliance members are 3Com, Cisco Systems, Extreme Networks, Intel, Nortel, Lucent, Sun Microsystems, and World Wide Packets. The mission of this alliance is to support and promote the development of the new IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, New York, www.ieee.org) A membership organization that includes engineers, scientists and students in electronics and allied fields. 802.3ae standard, also known as 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE).
"We whole-heartedly endorse the efforts of this alliance in promoting 10 Gigabit Ethernet for local area network LAN (Local Area Network) A communications network that serves users within a confined geographical area. The "clients" are the user's workstations typically running Windows, although Mac and Linux clients are also used. , MAN and WAN. Participating in this effort, we can serve the growing volume of Gigabit Ethernet traffic and accelerate the introduction of 10 Gigabit Ethernet into the networking marketplace," observes Per Andersson, president and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of SwitchCore. "Our belief is that IEEE 802.3ae will provide ease of use, cost effectiveness and interoperability of products for our customers," concludes Andersson.
"One of the major advantages gained by implementing 10GE is the ability to standardize protocols across the LAN and the WAN. This leads to increased efficiency in data transportation since no protocol conversion is necessary. The integration and QoS features offered by SwitchCore's products, combined with the scalability solution of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet, gives customers advantages in both the LAN and WAN environments," says Goran Sandberg, Product Manager at SwitchCore.
SwitchCore AB (publ) was founded in 1997, the result of a three-year research project at the Universities of Lund and Linkoping in Sweden. SwitchCore's CXE technology considerably increases the capacity in data and Internet switches. SwitchCore's first commercial switching device is expected to be the world's fastest, with a capacity of up to 16 Gbits, in a single chip, which is considerably faster than existing technology today.
The company currently employs 70 people and has offices in Lund and Stockholm, Sweden, and San Jose, California San Jose (IPA: /ˌsænhoʊˈzeɪ/) is the third-largest city in California, and the tenth-largest in the United States. It is the county seat of Santa Clara County. . SwitchCore's stocks are quoted on the OM Stockholm Exchange's O-list under the SCOR SCOR Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research
