Together with Cisco, Freescale and Xilinx, we formed the NBASE-T Alliance, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of the 5G/2.5G technology. Aquantia is the first company in over 40 years of Ethernet existence to have a standard created purely from its own technology. We are the sole inventor of AQrate technology and the only supplier of multigigabit ICs in production today.
The NBASE-T Alliance focuses on building the ecosystem and consensus required to enable a new 2.5GBASE-T/5GBASE-T Ethernet standard. Working with key stakeholders, the consortium releases specifications that define 2.5 and 5 Gigabit per second (Gbps) speeds at up to 100 meters using the large, installed base of copper cabling in enterprise networks. More than 45 companies have joined the alliance, representing all major facets of enterprise networking infrastructure such as access points, Ethernet switching, and computing, as well as the necessary technologies required to deliver these applications including physical layer ICs (PHYs), processors, connectors, controllers, switches, FPGAs, Power-over-Ethernet ICs, cables and test equipment. The alliance was founded in 2014 by Aquantia, Cisco, Freescale and Xilinx.
