SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Marvell(R) (Nasdaq:MRVL), a technology leader in the development of extreme broadband communications solutions, today announced a complete 10 Gigabit Ethernet physical layer solution using the Marvell Alaska(R) X 10 Gigabit Ethernet XAUI SERDES IC and Agilent Technologies serial 10Gbase-LR XENPAK transceiver. Marvell and Agilent will demonstrate the solution in Agilent's booth (#2001) at the Optical Fiber Conference 2002 in Anaheim, California from March 19th-21st. Agilent and Marvell have performed thorough testing to prove robust interoperability between the Marvell Alaska X XAUI SERDES device and the Agilent XENPAK module. Several tests performed using the Marvell Alaska X devices and the Agilent XENPAK module, with various IEEE data patterns, achieved bit error rates (BER) better than 10e-15 over 10km of single mode fiber. This is several orders of magnitude better than the IEEE requirements for 10 Gigabit Ethernet links. "Agilent and Marvell are working closely to tackle a critical piece of high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet systems," stated Tom Fawcett, Product Marketing Manager for Agilent's Networking Solutions Division. "Marvell's implementation of IEEE compliant XAUI interface allows our XENPAK module to be seamlessly connected with the Alaska X device, providing proven physical layer solution for networking systems."
