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 the 2013 Pacific Crest Emerging Technology Summit, to be held Feb. 12 and 13 in San Francisco. Faraj Aalaei, Aquantia’s president and CEO, will be part of a panel discussion titled “Silicon Enablers for Next Generation Networks.”
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 March 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.
Aquantia recently announced that it has shipped a cumulative 1 million 10GBASE-T ports, capitalizing on the industry’s transition to 10Gigabit Ethernet to quickly establish itself as the leader in 10GBASE-T semiconductors. Aquantia’s innovations—including the world’s highest performance, lowest power and smallest footprint 40nm 10GBASE-T PHY for high-density switches and LAN-on-Motherboard (LOM) servers—have helped trigger the massive adoption of 10GBASE-T in data centers.
“Aquantia’s 10GBASE-T solutions are being deployed in a large number of data center environments, effectively unlocking opportunities for the surrounding sockets to take full advantage of both the increased I/O bandwidth and the unique attributes of our silicon in the ecosystem,” Aalaei said. “We look forward to discussing with conference attendees how Aquantia’s 10GBASE-T is contributing to the transformation of next-generation networks.”
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 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 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. For more information, visit www.aquantia.com.
