Orbitz Worldwide deployed a Cisco Catalyst-based 10 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure to address the company's steady growth, supporting a significant technology project for the brand's multiple web site operations globally.
The Catalyst 6500 Supervisor Engine 720 switch engines create a 720 Gbps backplane to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth down to the wiring closets.
Silicom has been a long-time technology partner, and we are proud they have included Tehuti Networks technology in their high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet product line," said Arie Brish, CEO of Tehuti Networks.
Tehuti Networks' innovative 10GbE solutions allow servers to add 10 Gigabit Ethernet performance to increase network throughput by up to five times compared to conventional approaches -- without increasing cost, power or complexity.
The demand from our service provider customers for multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet links is significantly increasing the traffic on our network exchange platform, continuing a trend that started several years ago," said Lane Patterson, chief technologist at Equinix, Inc.
The Force10 TeraScale E-Series combines the Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet density and cost advantages of traditional Layer 2 switches with the resiliency and robust Layer 3 peering functionality of typical routers.
While 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments are growing rapidly in service provider networks, there remains a multi-billion dollar installed base of SONET/SDH.
The addition of Ethernet functionality to these solutions prevents service providers from realizing the cost advantages of Ethernet, forcing them to pay SONET-like prices for 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
The dual rise of small, powerful servers and high density Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet is transforming the supercomputer landscape by enabling cost-effective cluster computing.
With its high Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet densities and unmatched resiliency, the Force10 TeraScale E-Series enables organizations to interconnect thousands of computing nodes while ensuring reliable performance.
