Aquantia Showcases AQrate Technology Adoption at Interop Las Vegas 2015

Aquantia, the market leader of high-speed Ethernet connectivity solutions for data centers, mobile and enterprise, today announced that it will demonstrate its game-changing AQrate® technology in the heart of a bustling hub of development activity in the NBASE-T Alliance booth #1251, at Interop Las Vegas 2015 from April 28-30.

Aquantia will showcase its AQrate technology, which is at the foundation of the NBASE-T Alliance physical layer (PHY) specification, and demonstrate design momentum as partners and OEM manufacturers race to incorporate the 2.5- and 5-Gigabit per second (Gbps) Ethernet physical layer integrated circuits into Ethernet switches, Wave 2 of WiFi 802.11ac Access Points (APs) and client devices.

Momentum around the NBASE-T Alliance has grown rapidly, and its membership swelled to more than 25 companies in just six months after formation. The market for 2.5/5Gbps connectivity in enterprise is forecasted to grow to 47 million ports by 2019, according to research firm Dell’Oro Group. The alliance’s April 14 announcement highlights this momentum by demonstrating products running real-world applications.

Aquantia will demonstrate AQrate AQR405 quad-port PHY ICs on a reference design platform transmitting 2.5 and 5Gbps rates over Cat5e and Cat6 cables to Ethernet switches, WLAN APs and client PCs. It will also showcase the industry’s first Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) to power remote devices while transmitting 2.5/5GE on legacy cabling.

“Aquantia changed the face of enterprise networking technology when it introduced AQrate last year and industry response has been outstanding,” said Faraj Aalaei, President and CEO of Aquantia. “AQrate, the technology behind the NBASE-T physical layer specification, provides this game-changing capability at a fraction of the cost of upgrading the cable infrastructure. Aquantia not only enabled new data rates but it empowered an entire ecosystem of developers who are taking bold steps to introduce this technology and help enterprise networks keep pace as connectivity demands increase rapidly.”
