Neterion Teams With Teranetics to Showcase New 10GBASE-T Adapter in Live Demonstration at Interop 2007 Exposition

Product Meets Industry Standards for 100 Meter Reach and Reduced Power Demands to Support 10 Gigabit Ethernet Performance Over Copper Cabling; View Demo in Teranetics' Booth #ER17

CUPERTINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 8, 2007 -- Neterion, the industry leader in the 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter market for server and storage environments, announced that they are conducting a demonstration of their new 10GBASE-T adapter at the annual Interop trade show in Las Vegas May 20 - 25. Neterion is currently sampling the Xframe II® V-NIC™ adapter that meets the IEEE802.3an standard for 10GBASE-T networks.

The Xframe II adapter, featuring Teranetics' industry standard, single chip, low power TN1010 10GBASE-T PHY transceiver, enables existing copper cabling infrastructures in data centers to support the full 100m reach defined by the IEEE, while remaining significantly below the maximum 25W power envelope allowed by PCI slots.

"End users expect a cost effective migration path allowing their existing copper-based networks to achieve 10 Gigabit Ethernet performance," said Dave Zabrowski, president and CEO of Neterion. "However, they have been constrained by reach limitations of the adapters currently on the market. Our new 10GBASE-T Xframe II V-NIC adapter, with its low power consumption profile, overcomes those technical challenges and provides the solution that end users are seeking."

Xframe II is part of Neterion's family of V-NIC adapters, featuring the Hyperframe™ suite of technologies designed to provide virtualization at the I/O level. It supports the higher speed PCI-X 2.0 bus architecture, with Double Data Rate throughput, enabling full line rate 10 Gbps performance.

"By integrating our low power, single chip TN1010 transceiver with Neterion's Xframe II state machine architecture, data centers managers now have a choice to adopt the 10GBASE-T standard with the reach and power requirements that achieve all that they have been expecting in 10G networking while leveraging their existing copper cabling infrastructure," stated Matt Rhodes, CEO of Teranetics.
