Bel Fuse, Teranetics pair on high density 10GBASE-T platform

Sept. 17, 2008
September 17, 2008 -- Teranetics' dual-port 10GBASE-T PHY and Bel's 2x4 MagJack integrated connector enable 48 ports in one rack unit.

September 17, 2008 -- Bel Fuse and Teranetics have jointly introduced a high density 10GBASE-T platform which enables switch manufacturers to design up to 48 RJ-45 ports into a single rack unit. The joint platform incorporates Bel's G08-8NNR-031 2x4 MagJack connector along with the recently introduced Teranetics TN2022, a dual-port 10GBASE-T PHY IC.

According to the companies, the combined 10GBASE-T platform will allow original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to design systems that deliver 10 times more bandwidth at nearly one-third of the cost of, and in the same rack space as, existing 1 Gigabit Ethernet systems.

The Teranetics TN2022 PHY features multi-rate capabilities, consuming only six watts of power per port at the full 10 Gigabit rate, and operates at cable lengths exceeding one hundred meters. Bel's G08-8NNR-031 MagJack connector delivers superior with its double stack, eight-port format, while supporting Ethernet signal transmission at 10GBASE-T data rates and distances.

"Bel has a track record of delivering high performance magnetics for BASE-T technologies" says Kamal Dalmia, vice president of marketing at Teranetics. "By combining the strengths of our high-performance PHY and the MagJack integrated connector modules, Teranetics and Bel have set a new standard for port density, cost and performance."

"In addition to providing customers twice the port density, MagJack connectors do not require OEMs to design-in mezzanine cards or any extra components," adds John Hess, MagJack product manager at Bel. "Coupled with the Teranetics PHY, it's the optimal 10 Gigabit, high-density solution."

The TN2022 dual-port 10GBASE-T PHY transceiver and the G08-8NNR-031 MagJack connectors are now available in sample quantities. Additional product information and pricing are available upon request.
