MILPITAS, Calif. -- Aquantia, the leading developer of mainstream 10GBASE-T solutions, will demonstrate its AQ1000 family of PHYs at Interop Las Vegas on April 29 through May 1 in a multi-vendor configuration featuring the leaders in the network test industry. Aquantia's AQ1001 is the first low-power monolithic 10GBASE-T PHY designed for mainstream applications such as dual-port NICs or high-density switches. The demonstration at Interop will feature the AQ1001 operating over 100m of Category 6A UTP cabling, with network test provided by the Ixia 10GBASE-T Ethernet LAN Services Load Module and the Spirent TestCenter's High Density 2-port 10GBASE-T Personality Module (GBT-4100A).

The configuration chosen for Aquantia's suite at Interop achieves a number of milestones. OEMs considering 10GBASE-T have been demanding the low power and manufacturability of the AQ1001, which is demonstrated both on 100m of CAT6A cable, as well as with the shorter channels common within the Data Center. OEMs also demand robust performance and vendor interoperability. Aquantia's suite will host the industry's first demonstration of the robust nature of the IEEE standard 802.3an-2006(tm) with operation among three vendors.

"Interoperability demonstration of the AQ1000 family of PHYs with Ixia and Spirent, the two leaders in network test, marks a critical milestone in the validation of our low-power 10GBASE-T solution in the marketplace," said Phil Delansay, president and CEO of Aquantia. "Our suite at Interop not only showcases the capability of our devices to enable mainstream platforms, but also shows the ability of 10GBASE-T and the familiar RJ45 to assume their place as the leading interconnect for 10-Gigabit Ethernet applications."
