LUND, Sweden -- SwitchCore AB, a company that markets and sells integrated network devices for data switching, today announces its new Xpeedium2pro product for the access market. Xpeedium2pro shortens time to market for solutions that can help carriers more cost-effectively deploy broadband access and the emerging triple-play services (voice, video and data). The market of Ethernet-based access network (IP-DSLAM) is expected to grow by about 30 per cent annually and is expected to be worth $1.5 billion by 2007.

The products builds upon SwitchCore's proven Xpeedium and Xpeedium2 chips and provides effective solutions to the access network while retaining the cost advantages of components developed for a much larger market for enterprise network switches.

"We are very excited about the introduction of Xpeedium2Pro into the Ethernet-based access network (IP-DSLAM) market," said Henric Isacsson, CEO of SwitchCore. "In addition to substantial cost savings, Xpeedium2Pro provides one of the most efficient, secure and ready for market solution for today's OEMs and carriers that want increased bandwidth and to serve more subscribers per box. We are confident that by leveraging our growing list of OEM partners, that we can become an important leader in this market that is growing by 30 per cent annually."

The growth in data and broadband services has created an opportunity for the expansion of the Ethernet standard in public access networks, particularly in the xDSL arena. The challenge for the industry has been to exploit the cost advantages of Ethernet while still offering the same carrier class reliability as legacy ATM equipment. The SwitchCore Xpeedium2Pro meets this challenge with a family of Ethernet chips uniquely designed for the demanding needs of the access market.
