Infineon Introduces R-MAC Family of ICs Enabling Integrated Voice, Video and Data Services Over Ethernet in Optical Networkshttp://www.infineon.com/cgi/ecrm.dll/jsp/showfrontend.do?lang=EN&news_nav_oid=-9979&content_type=NEWS&content_oid=113970Munich, Germany – November 4, 2004 –Infineon Technologies AG (FSE/NYSE: IFX) today announced the new R-MAC™ family of integrated circuits (ICs). Designed to improve Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) functionality in Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), the RPR Media-Access-Control (MAC) implementation combines the simplicity and bandwidth efficiency of Ethernet-based networks with the carrier-class features of SONET/SDH infrastructure. Infineon's R-MAC family completes the company's broad portfolio of framers and switching ICs and further strengthens its Data over SONET/SDH solution offerings for Metro Ethernet Services answering the increasing market demand for packet-based voice and data transport.The single-chip R-MAC5 is the first member of the R-MAC family. It is a standard-compliant 5 Gbit/s RPR Media Access Controller allowing better integration of the benefits of RPR into SONET/SDH rings by supporting up to five rings in a complete RPR node compared to the existing solutions supporting only one-half ring per chip. In addition, the new IC is the industry's first offering channelization, allowing telecom providers to create virtual RPR rings over the same physical ring and to use RPR technology as an overlay to existing SONET/SDH-networks....This new product belongs in the ailing wireline division.5 Gb/sec sounds a nice speed, wonder if royalties are due to Rambus ;-)CheersCor(Abe are you there? :)
