"In April JNI pledged to show customers products in Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and iSCSI at COMDEX, and we have delivered on that promise," said Neal Waddington, president and CEO of JNI Corporation. "Fulfilling the strategy I have outlined since that time, we are first to market with a 10 Gb InfiniBand HCA Module, first to market with 2 Gb CompactPCI and SBus Fibre Channel HBAs; and producing iSCSI solutions on a time-to-market basis with the rest of the industry. Comdex attendees will be the first to see these public demonstrations, which reinforce our commitment to expanding on our core Fibre Channel base, to encompass enterprise-quality connectivity solutions that includes InfiniBand and iSCSI technology."
