Leader in VPN technology chooses SBE's gigabit adapter

1/17/2003 - SBE Inc., (NASDAQ: SBEI), a leading supplier of high performance OEM networking solutions, announced it has been selected by a market leader of Virtual Private Networks (VPN) equipment to provide PMC Gigabit Ethernet adapters for its family of products. Pending the typical pre-production development cycle, the incremental annual revenue to SBE is expected to reach $2,000,000 next year.

SBE’s Gigabit Ethernet adapter was chosen because it offers the greatest port density and flexibility at a competitive price. OEM developers can leverage off-the-shelf products such as the "lanPMC-4GC" for fast turn around, and focus their attention on best-of-class specialized hardware and software features for product differentiation.

The lanPMC-4GC features four-ports of Gigabit Ethernet on an industry standard PMC form factor with RJ45C (copper) connectors for CAT-5 cabling. The adapter has been designed for maximum port connectivity and features Intel’s fourth generation 82546EB Ethernet controllers. In addition to Gigabit speeds the adapter can automatically interface with legacy 10/100 Mb/second networks when used in VMEbus, CompactPCI or PCI systems.

"SBE is encouraged by the early success of the LAN adapter product family,"said Dan Grey, senior vice president of sales and marketing for SBE. "By using SBE’s Gigabit Ethernet adapters our customers will conserve valuable resources for more important timely innovation" Grey concluded.
