SysKonnect's Commitment to Gigabit Ethernet
Publication: CI Press Release Issued: Date: 1998-05-27 Reporter: CI Systems

CI Press Release


SysKonnect , a specialist for strategic server links, is to leverage its extensive experience in the field of high-performance server network cards to support Gigabit Ethernet technology.

Europe's leader in FDDI network cards (IDC 1997), SysKonnect is represented in South Africa by high-speed, mission-critical networking specialist, CI Systems and its membership of the Gigabit Ethernet Alliance emphasises its commitment to providing standard-compliant solutions.

According to CI Systems managing director, Richard Young, SysKonnect's strategic commitment will begin to bear fruit in form of a new family of Gigabit Ethernet server adapters.

He says these will have excellent capabilities with regard to fault tolerance and maximum bus performance. Dual-port versions will allow redundant links, thus making the same outstanding level of fault tolerance available for Gigabit Ethernet as FDDI backbone technology enjoys today.

By supporting the 64 bit/66 MHz PCI bus architecture, the adapters will make ideal use of the bus bandwidth of modern server systems which is up to four times higher than in 32 bit/33 MHz systems.

This will make the upcoming family of SysKonnect Gigabit Ethernet adapters the devices of choice for the highly sensitive area of links to high-availability server systems, says Young.

For more information on the Gigabit Ethernet, please refer to the SysKonnect web site at : http://www.syskonnect.com/syskonnect/products/b0101_ethernet.html
