Tehuti Networks Unveils Industry’s First 10GbE 10GBASE-T and Dual Port 10GBASE-CX4 Low-Profile Server Adapters

Austin, Texas – January 18, 2006 – Tehuti Networks Inc., a semiconductor company providing 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) single-chip, low-power network controllers, today announced three new additions to its adapter reference design family. The TN7588-S, a 10GBASE-T single port NIC; the TN7588-D, a 10GBASE-T dual port NIC; and the TN7585-D, the industry’s first 10GbE dual port CX4, low-profile server adapter. Tehuti Networks will publicly unveil the world’s first 10GBASE-T adapters running over UTP copper cabling at BICSI 2007, Booth #411, January 22-25 in Orlando, Florida.

All adapters are based upon the newly released Tehuti Networks TN3016 host hardware offload controller. The TN7588-S and TN7588-D adapters also include the Teranetics TeraPHYTM TN1010 transceiver and are designed to support the IEEE Std. 802.3anTM. The TN7585-D dual port CX4 adapter is compliant with IEEE Std. 802.3akTM and is sampling to ODM and OEM customers.

“Teranetics is delighted to work with Tehuti Networks to deliver the world’s first dual-port 10GBASE-T adapters,” said Matt Rhodes, CEO of Teranetics. “Tehuti Networks’ low power controllers combined with Teranetics’ single chip PHY are the critical components to achieving the power budgets and small size demanded by volume servers.”

“Tehuti Networks is pleased to offer the 10GbE market such market-leading products,” said Arie Brish, CEO of Tehuti Networks. “By bringing these very small and efficient adapters to the market, our ODM and OEM customers are now able to provide low power, inexpensive solutions that were previously not available.”

“With this announcement, Tehuti Networks is demonstrating excellent progress in delivering compelling 10GbE products,” said Bob Wheeler, Senior Analyst with The Linley Group. “By offering such small form factor, low power and low cost solutions, Tehuti Networks is removing barriers to 10GbE adoption in high-volume platforms.”

Tehuti Networks’ TN3016 controller features a PCI Express® host bus and XAUI (10 Gigabit Attachment Unit Interface) network interfaces. All adapters feature a PCI Express™ 8 lane host bus interface and dual XAUI 10GbE ports. The TN7585-D adapter’s dimensions are a mere 4.6″ by 2.5″ with a power dissipation of 11W. These solutions support all major operating systems including Microsoft™, Linux™, FreeBSD® and Solaris™. They also support PCI-SIG IOV multi-root virtualization and software VMWare and Xen.

Tehuti Networks’ TN7585-D NICs are also offered as a product development kit (PDK) which includes two adapters, two CX4 cables and all documentation. The PDK may be ordered using part number TN9585-D at a price of $1500. Production volumes of the TN7585-D will be available in 2Q 2007 with a MSRP of $500.
