CommScope Enterprise Solutions, a division of CommScope, Inc. (NYSE:CTV), will present a 10 Gigabit Ethernet demonstration at Cisco Networkers 2009, January 26-29, in Barcelona, Spain. The demonstration utilizes SYSTIMAX® GigaSPEED® X10D Category 6A/E solutions and showcases CommScope’s ability to deliver 10Gbps speeds across 100 meters of high-performance unshielded twisted pair copper cabling configured in the worst case of alien crosstalk.

The CommScope demonstration also features a data center network using Solarflare’s 10GBASE-T vNIC and a Cisco Catalyst 4900M switch delivering line-rate speeds across virtual servers running VMware™ ESX and iSCSI storage appliances. Together, the solutions illustrate a converged LAN/SAN 10GBASE-T networking infrastructure running applications in a VMware virtualized server setting. With high-performance physical layer solutions, users have a single, unified virtualized server network that enables heavy traffic loads, storage, video and standard application networking without impacting network performance.

“As we run 10Gbps network speeds over our SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED X10D solutions, we aren’t just demonstrating the high-performance copper cabling; we are highlighting the evolution of data centres,” said Anne-Marie Kenneally, vice president of sales, EMEA, CommScope Enterprise Solutions. “The next wave of data centre technology is here, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet will be the trend. CommScope, through its intelligent infrastructure solutions, helps ensure the highest level of performance and reliability today and in the future.”

The SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED X10D solution is specifically engineered with enhanced cable and connector performance designed to support emerging Ethernet requirements. It complies with the ratified IEEE 802.3an 10GBASE-T standard and fully complies with Class E channel and Category 6A channel specifications. With CommScope’s network infrastructure solutions at the core of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet demonstration, enterprises can better visualize server virtualization, iSCSI and network convergence at its highest efficiency.

“Cisco Networkers 2009 is a great opportunity for everyone to sneak a peek at the future data centre environment,” said Kenneally. “The demo magnifies that placing CommScope’s innovative solutions that offer real-time efficiencies can positively impact network security, IT productivity and overall business success without impacting network performance.”
