Enterprise Networking to scale to 5GbE
For the past several years Cisco and Aquantia have been working together
to accelerate the use of 5 and 2.5 Gigabit technology
in enterprise networks.
Aquantia’s 28nm AQrate® AQR408 is the world’s only quad-port four-speed 5G/2.5G/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX PHY in the industry.
The AQR407/AQR408/AQR409 are pin-compatible multi-speed quad-port PHYs housed in 19 mm flip-chip BGA packages enabling efficient high density design for high port-count and compact switches across a range of speed requirements.
The Aquantia® GEN2 AQrate PHYs are low-power, high-performance multi-speed 10GBASE-T/5GBASE-T/2.5GBASE-T/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX transceivers. AQrate technology bridges the bandwidth gap between legacy Enterprise cabling infrastructure designed for 1 Gbps data rates and emergent 802.11ac WLAN technology aggregating bandwidth in excess of 1 Gbps. AQrate delivers 5 GbE and 2.5 GbE network connectivity speed through 100 meters of Cat 5e or Cat 6 cabling enabling the unabated roll-out of 802.11ac WLAN infrastructure with zero change to legacy cabling.
AQrate PHYs are compatible with the NBASE-TTM Alliance PHY Specification, the recently ratified IEEE® 802.3bzTM standard and the IEEE® 802.3an standard to perform all the physical layer functions required to implement 10GBASE-T/5GBASE-T/2.5GBASE-T/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX transmission over 100 meters of twisted pair cabling. The AQrate PHY family integrates such features as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), 1588v2, MACsec and supports all PoE standards up to 60W.
