CIOs of high-performance businesses are aiming for lower latency for their data centers. Latency of the network becomes one of the most critical issues in data center performance, and innovations assist in significantly lowering the latency at next-generation data centers.
NetLogic Microsystems, a provider of intelligent semiconductor solutions for Internet networks, announced the world’s lowest latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) PHY solution for data centers. The breakthrough performance follows innovations in high-speed physical layer SerDes development.
“We are pleased to have once again raised the bar for the industry by delivering our 10GbE PHY products with best-in-class latency, power and jitter performance to effectively address next-generation data center requirements,” said Stefanos Sidiropoulos, vice president of Physical Layer Products at NetLogic Microsystems (News - Alert), in a statement.
Achieving 70ns latency in 10GE PHY with integrated SerDes while maintaining low power consumption is a big achievement. This technology breakthrough is positive for an industry that is migrating to cloud-based applications in the data center.
High-performance applications need lower latency to improve financial profits and user experience. Every nanosecond of latency in the data center can make a major difference in price points on a large trading exchange in the financial industry.
“As the leading provider of ultra-low latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches for clouds and data centers, we are very pleased with NetLogic Microsystems' continued technical leadership in reducing PHY latency,” said Andy Bechtolsheim, chairman and chief development officer at Arista Networks.
Arista Networks is working with NetLogic to achieve the lowest Ethernet switch latency in the industry.
NetLogic Microsystems’ new dual-channel AEL2020-LL PHY with integrated SerDes features an ultra low-latency of 70 nanoseconds (ns), which is nearly a half of existing solutions.
Recently, NetLogic Microsystems showcased a portfolio of 10-100 Gigabit Ethernet PHY/SerDes devices. The recent bandwidth upgrades to 10Gbps and beyond has resulted in the adoption of 10G infrastructure in data centers, enterprises and service provider networks across the globe - with some early adopters deploying 40GbE and 100GbE systems.
