PORTLAND, Ore. -- Accelerant Networks today announced the industry’s first ultra-high speed transceiver designed specifically for high performance backplane communications. This new category of Backplane Communication Transceivers utilizes Accelerant’s proprietary and patented WildPHYRtm technology to deliver high performance, virtually error-free backplane communication across any existing or new backplanes. The AN5000 Backplane Communications Transceiver, Accelerant’s first product, delivers 5 Gb/s on a differential pair (10 Gb/s full duplex) while dynamically eliminating signal integrity problems on transmission lines from one to 48 inches.

“The backplane communication system is at the heart of networking equipment today and has become the most critical intra-system bandwidth bottleneck,” said Paul Nahi, CEO and president of Accelerant Networks. “Accelerant is the first company to focus on backplane communication issues and design a solution that solves that exact problem. Our engineering breadth and depth allowed us to create a product that represents the first significant advance in backplane communication in the past 20 years."
