March 4, 2005 - GigaSPEED X10D Solution will be used in operational hub.

SYSTIMAX Solutions has announced that Sun Microsystems is installing the first SYSTIMAX 10 Gigabit Ethernet over copper/UTP cabling solution into a major operational hub in the United Kingdom.

The SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED X10D Solution provides a full end-to-end 10 Gigabit solution over copper that is compatible with the current IEEE task force standards.

"We've worked very closely with IDC, a SYSTIMAX Prestige BusinessPartner, for over four years and the GigaSPEED X10D Solution is the obvious choice for protecting our future bandwidth needs," says Sun Microsystems spokesman David Cole. "We now have the confidence to adopt emerging and bandwidth-hungry technology without stalling other applications. SYSTIMAX Solutions and IDC have yet again provided us with invaluable advice and support."

"We're delighted that Sun Microsystems chose to prepare for future bandwidth needs by upgrading their network with the GigaSPEED X10D Solution," says John McCarthy, managing director of Northern Europe, SYSTIMAX Solutions. "We expect this solution to provide Sun Microsystems with exceptional value and flexibility that has not been seen before on a commercial copper infrastructure.

"Business enterprises face ongoing needs for higher bandwidth solutions as network complexity and traffic increases," he continues. "We believe the GigaSPEED X10D Solution offers the most cost-effective way to support these demands."
