SwitchCore's CXE Technology inside Wideband's Professional Series Gigabit Switches

7/10/2002 - SwitchCore AB (publ.), developer of integrated switching devices for internet and data communications, today announces a product launch of a customer in the enterprise networking segment. Wideband Corporation has launched the Wideband Professional Series Gigabit Ethernet Switches based on SwitchCore's CXE-2010 switching devices.

Wideband's 8 and 16-port Professional Series 10/100/1000 Ethernet switches are its flagship product and are loaded with features that require robust semiconductor support. The layer 2 switches come managed or unmanaged.

"We are very proud of our Professional switches and have made it a priority to use the finest components," said Dr. Roger Billings, President of Wideband Corporation. " The features and performance of SwitchCore chips have helped Wideband maintain its performance edge."

Wideband's Professional 8 and 16-port managed and unmanaged 10/100/1000 switches are loaded with the top-end features, such as layer 2 switching at wire speed, providing extensive support for VLANs, link aggregation, traffic prioritization and packet filtering based on layer 2, 3, and 4 information. The Switches also features store and forward technology to block error packet, and flow control for full duplex, back pressure for half duplex, ensuring highly reliable throughput and providing an efficient network environment. Special features of the Switches support auto MDI/MDI-X to automatically detect straight through or cross-over cables and adapt, and Flash management, which enables management to be added to an unmanaged Switch as an upgrade at a later time.

"We are happy to see that Wideband chose SwitchCore's semiconductors as the core technology in their higher-end Gigabit switches. Wideband has a strong and diversified portfolio for enterprise and workgroup applications, which is a key market segment for us", said Mike Farnam, VP of Sales at SwitchCore.
