Aquantia develops communication integrated circuits (ICs) for enterprise/data center applications. Data Centers are expanding. Servers are embracing virtualization. Storage is growing exponentially. Ten Gigabit Ethernet enables this converged fabric, which will extend outward from the data center throughout the enterprise.

10GBASE-T is the interconnect which makes this possible. Aquantia delivered the industry’s first monolithic low­ power 10GBASE-T solutions, which would enable the expansion of 1OGE within the data center and the enterprise. Copper interconnect has dominated each generation of Ethernet in the past, and Aquantia is committed to making 10GbaseT as ubiquitous tomorrow as copper GE is today.
