Teranetics Intros TN2022

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Teranetics, Inc., a leading provider of high
performance Ethernet solutions, today introduced the industrys first dual-port 10GBASE-T PHY
IC. A second generation PHY, the TN2022 doubles the port density of switch and Network
Interface Cards (NIC) compared to first generation 10GBASE-T PHYs. With the smallest form
factor available and low power profile, the TN2022 enables switch manufacturers to design as
many as 48 RJ-45 ports into a single rack unit.

Typically, 48 ports is the highest density available for stand-alone 1 Gigabit Ethernet switches in
one rack unit. Because the TN2022 supports development of new 10 Gigabit products with the
same port count, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can now design systems that
deliver 10 times more bandwidth at nearly one-third the cost per Gigabit of bandwidth. At this
density and price level, 10 Gigabit Ethernet becomes an attractive choice for data center
managers who require bandwidth upgrades in addition to a fabric for unifying multiple networks
in the data center.

“Teranetics is once again in the lead among 10GBASE-T PHYs,” said Jag Bolaria, Senior
Analyst, Linley Group. “The small footprint of the dual-port PHY eases system design and yields
port density needed for lower cost per port.”
