Escalating semiconductor development costs and protracted development cycles have forced Ethernet to evolve at a snail’s pace, creating a one-size-fits-all solution in a cadence of two years. Hence, the migration from 3.2T to 12.8T is a six year-long cycle. Contrary to that, modularity offers mix and match options at the silicon level, disaggregating the capacity from the I/O and accelerating time to deployment. Our first modular solution based on port extender technology will significantly reduce cost and power, while minimizing operational costs. Customers will regain choice and design optimization, and can craft a modular and effective configuration for each port density need.
