Trebia Networks Validates Interoperability at iSCSI Plugfest

7/21/2003 - Trebia Networks, Inc., a leader in the development of system-on-silicon solutions for storage networking applications, participated in last week's iSCSI Consortium Group Test Period operated by the University of New Hampshire's InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL).

Working together with the UNH-IOL and 21 other iSCSI vendors, Trebia validated the interoperability of its IETF-compliant iSCSI products with those of leading OEMs. The testing forum enabled participants to connect their devices and ensure that their products function well together.

"We're really excited about the momentum behind iSCSI. The results from this plugfest demonstrate that iSCSI-enabled equipment will be plug-and-play, ensuring rapid and seamless iSCSI deployment in support of the growing market demand," said George Harper, Trebia's director of marketing. "Trebia's participation in the iSCSI group testing assures our customers that systems based on Trebia SNP products work with the latest iSCSI equipment and support the IETF specifications."

"This test period examined implementations of the iSCSI technology, both from a device-to-device interoperability perspective, and that of conformance to the standard," explained Stephen Schaeffer, manager of the UNH-IOL's iSCSI Consortium. "The participants at this test period have made a commitment to developing interoperable iSCSI devices that conform to the IETF specifications," he added.

This latest iSCSI "plugfest" involved 22 companies including: Adaptec, Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, Network Appliance, Trebia Networks and Wind River.

Compliance and Interoperability
In addition to its rich features and industry-leading performance, the Trebia SNP product family brings a wealth of successful compliance and interoperability testing to OEMs. The SNP-1000's Fibre Channel technology has successfully completed UNH Interoperability Lab (IOL) and SANMark SCD-2001 testing. Trebia's TCP Offload Engine has undergone significant interoperability testing and has completed testing against relevant Ixia ANVLTM TCP Core, TCP Advanced and TCP Performance test suites. Additionally, the SNP-1000 has successfully participated in all but one of the UNH IOL's iSCSI plugfests to date, and is compliant with the iSCSI and FCIP specifications. In fact, Trebia has provided UNH's IOL with a core portion of its iSCSI conformance test suite to improve the overall interoperability of iSCSI implementations across the industry. Trebia Networks is a member of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) and the IP Storage Forum and was an active contributor to the iSCSI and FCIP standardization processes.
