UK based AQtion added a new line of multi-gigabit Ethernet controllers that will be capable of supporting 2.5, 5, and 10 giga-bit network speed along with Gigabit Ethernet. The vice president, sales and marketing of this firm, Kamal Dalmia says, “We are now delivering the last piece of the puzzle in enterprise and SMB networks, the multi-gigabit client connectivity.” The company adds that the Gigabit Ethernet has been a regular offering in this market for more than one and a half decade now. It is becoming an outdated concept that needs a little push and some added freshness to maintain its grip.
Several new additions like image rendering, database transfers, Enterprise-class backup, multi-core simulations as well as video editing and data storage in local Network-Attach Storage, etc have added extra pressure on this concept. A simple solution to this problem is presented by AQtion that brings-in an Enterprise-class client controller technology that supports all kind of Multi-Gigabit speeds. The two AQtion devices called the AQC107 and 108 provide complete support for 5 and 2.5Gbit Ethernet speed over copper as well as 2.5/5GBASE-T. The devices completely comply with NBASE-T’s features and specifications along with the IEEE 802.3bz standard.
Along with this, both devices completely comply backward coordination with 100MbE along with Gigabit Ethernet. The AQC105 comes with an extra feature that syncs well with a Ethernet speed of up to 10Gbit. Or the 10GBASE-T over Car6A copper cables that comply with IEEE802.3an. Both are single port devices that supports four speeds, 100M, 1G, 2,5G, and 5G Ethernet, along with, the AQC107 also supports 10G Ethernet. Buyers going for these controllers will have the facility to connect with a wide array of Ethernet switches that are available in market these days with multi-gig ports. It will also be compatible with latest version of WIFi 802.11ac access points.
