FREMONT, Calif. -- Ample Communications, a leading provider of communications silicon for wire line network systems, today announced that to-date it has shipped over 250,000 1GE MAC ports from its Harrier family of chips, more than doubling the number of shipments since June 2005. The Harrier is a triple speed multiport Ethernet MAC with intelligent classification and oversubscription support.

"We have had great success in the last couple of months with our shipments as more of our customers achieve production status. I believe the industry leading feature set and performance of the Harrier is validated by the number of shipments to both first-time and repeat customers," said Marek Tlalka, vice president of marketing for Ample Communications. "We look forward to continued success in the market with a number of new features and product offerings that we are working on."

The Harrier chips are targeted for Ethernet switches, security appliances, routers and access devices in enterprise and metro applications, and provide cost-effective system deployments with its unique statistical multiplexing features. The product family consists of three devices: Harrier-24 (A2510) which aggregates twenty-four 10/100/1G Ethernet ports, Harrier-12 (A2511) which aggregates twelve 10/100/1G ports, and Harrier-24LS (A2512) which aggregates twenty-four 10/100 ports. These chips support industry standard RGMII/RMII interfaces on the line-side and the SPI-4.2 interface on the system-side. The devices include on-chip packet memory, multirate Ethernet MACs, flexible oversubscription processing logic and an innovative port redundancy protection support.
