Arista Networks offers 10Gbit over old cabling - Value Switches

Arista Networks has launched two new switches which it claims can transmit 10Gbit data over a 1Gbit cable.

The company claims that firms looking to upgrade the network infrastructure to allow for faster transfer speeds could benefit from the new technology, which would allow them to use existing cabling.

Vice-president for marketing at the firm Mark Foss said: "[Businesses want] backward compatibility with the products they're replacing, because often people will upgrade certain parts of their networks first, then go to higher speeds elsewhere at a later time."

The company now manufactures switches which takes up one unit of server rack space that support either 24 or 48 ports and work with standard Cat5e cables or Cat6 leads.

The 7100T layer 2/3 devices can handle a mixture of traffic from one to 10Gbit and use Arista's Extensible Operating System.

Meanwhile, Fibre optic switch manufacturer Brocade has introduced a new range of IP products for use in data centres.ADNFCR-1186-ID-19170257-ADNFCR
