Finisar Corp. (FNSR) Teams with Neterion to Demonstrate the Industry’s First Laserwire

Neterion Inc. develops 10-gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters for server and storage environments, while Finisar Corp. (NASDAQ: FNSR) develops optic solutions for high-speed data networks. Today, the companies announced a demonstration of the first of its kind, a Laserwire 10GbE adapter, based on Neterion’s Xframe E network interface solution. The companies have reserved a booth at the Interop IT Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas from April 27 through May 2.

“We are very pleased to partner with Finisar to demonstrate the industry’s first Laserwire 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter,” Greg Scherer, vice president of product planning at Neterion stated in the press release. “As the market leader, Neterion is committed to pursuing the most cost effective and most flexible offerings to enable widespread adoption of 10 GbE. Finisar’s Laserwire provides unmatched flexibility and power consumption for environments that need both short and medium reach cable solutions. This development has the possibility of completely changing the economics of connectivity in the data center.”

Laserwire uses fiber optic technology to transmit data as a next-generation cable solution for low cost, high-speed serial connectivity. The Laserwire connector, integrated with Neterion’s adapter, provides serial 10 Gbps performance for multiple Datacenter Server Connectivity architectures, especially those that require flexible distances.
