PMC-Sierra Unveils 10-Gig Widget
"Gigabit Ethernet was intended only for use in the LAN. However, the 10 Gigabit version is showing huge potential as the transport layer for the emerging multi service metro network, thus leveraging Ethernet's proven reliability and scalability," said Allen Leibovitch, director of communications Semiconductor Research at RHK, Inc. "Since the 10 Gigabit Ethernet specification will include several LAN and WAN variations, IC vendors in this space will need to meet certain standards to be successful. They will need to be involved in the standards bodies, understand well the existing optical transport standards, and provide a comprehensive product lineup. We believe PMC-Sierra can meet these criteria with its new chip set products."
