MILPITAS, Calif., March 11 — Aquantia, the leading developer of High Speed Ethernet connectivity solutions for cloud computing and large-scale data center deployments, announced today that it will participate in Piper Jaffray’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference, to be held March 12 and 13 in New York City. Phil Delansay, Aquantia’s vice president of business development, will be part of a panel discussion titled “Semiconductor Opportunities in Communications Infrastructure” on Tuesday, March 12, at 12:30 pm.
The trends towards mobile, video and cloud continue to accelerate, creating an unprecedented migration and consolidation of data into large-scale data centers. Simultaneously, the virtualization of servers continues to increase rapidly, creating even more demand for faster LAN interfaces. In 2012, major server OEMs released a new class of 10GBASE-T capable servers using the powerful Xeon E5 processors, creating a combination of high-performance processing and high-speed I/O, allowing the deployment of a new generation of 10GE infrastructure. The launch of these 10GBASE-T servers, together with a broad range of 10GBASE-T based switches marked the beginning of the transition of this technology to mass deployment. As Jag Bolaria, senior analyst at The Linley Group stated, Aquantia has quickly established itself as the leader in 10GBASE-T semiconductors within this growing market segment, culminating in the company’s January 2013 milestone of shipping a cumulative 1 million 10GBASE-T ports.
As more products from OEMs have recently been made available, the growth for 10GBASE-T is set to accelerate in the coming quarters, as evidenced also by the latest forecast from Crehan Research, which is projecting that more than 5 million 10GBASE-T ports will ship in the year 2013. The combined market share of data center-class switching OEMs having a 10GBASE-T offering for their core products now stands at a staggering 95 percent, completing the swath of server products offered with that interface.
“Aquantia’s industry-leading technology - including the world’s most mature, lowest power and smallest footprint 40nm 10GBASE-T PHY in production, for high-density switches and LAN-on-Motherboard (LOM) servers — is driving the fast adoption of 10GBASE-T in data center environments,” Delansay said. “We look forward to a vibrant panel discussion about the critical role semiconductor innovation plays in the rapid, ongoing transformation of this demanding market segment.”
Aquantia’s 10Gigabit Ethernet ICs are at the heart of cloud computing and large-scale data center deployments taking place today. This market segment is going through a very fast transition, with astounding growth in the total amount of compute power and the move to faster connectivity. This has in turn led to a new paradigm for 10Gigabit Ethernet all across the ecosystem. With its 10GBASE-T silicon products, Aquantia delivers to its OEM customers the most versatile and highest performance 10Gigabit Ethernet connectivity solution while providing lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Located in Silicon Valley, Aquantia is a venture-backed company, with strong tier-1 VCs and strategic investor support.
