Neterion and NextCom Team to Deliver Unparalleled Performance and Ubiquity For Energy Exploration Applications

CUPERTINO, Calif. and NASHUA, N.H.--(CCNMatthews - Nov 7, 2005) -

Xframe 10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapters to Be Integrated into NextDimension Mobile Servers for High Speed Delivery of Mission Critical Data

Neterion Inc., the industry leader in the 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter market and NextCom LLC, the fast growing manufacturer and provider of extreme performance, mobile and small footprint, computing products and solutions for the Exploration and Production (E&P) industry, today announced that NextCom is utilizing the Neterion Xframe® family of 10 GbE adapters for its high performance, mission critical servers.

Today's increasing global demand for additional sources of energy is requiring companies to adopt advanced technologies for successful exploration and production. During the discovery process, engineers must have immediate access to vast amounts of data regardless of location. In addition, field engineers are often operating under extreme weather conditions. This requires computing equipment that is mobile, ruggedized and extremely reliable. NextCom's line of mobile servers meets these requirements and by teaming with Neterion, energy firms have a high performance, highly reliable and ubiquitous networking solution.

"Our Xframe 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters provide the speed, scalability and low latency requirements to meet the demand for high performance exploration and production applications," noted Philippe Levy, Director of Marketing for Neterion. "These new NextCom servers will enable engineers to have immediate access to critical data regardless of where they are located."

The NextDimension™ server, smaller than a briefcase, provides functions such as advanced digital production, seismic data analysis, test and measurement and the display of proprietary software applications.

"We've designed our systems with scientific researchers, and seismic data analysts' needs in mind. Our servers deliver the performance, expandability and portability that are key requirements for high performance computing in the E & P space," said Laura Cooper, Director of Marketing, NextCom LLC. "Combining our strengths with Neterion's industry leading 10 GbE adapters positions us to set a new benchmark in this industry for performance, portability and expandability."

The server will be on display at AMD's Booth 2906, Hall C, at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists Conference at the George Brown Convention Center, November 6 - 11 in Houston, Texas.
