BOSTON, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --The integration of controller/MAC and PHY devices is presenting both challenges and opportunities to 10GBase-T PHY vendors and adapter vendors with controller/MAC solutions. The number of 10GBase-T vendors has dropped, but the competition is just as intense, according to the latest report from Heavy Reading Components Insider (www.heavyreading.com/commchip), a paid research service of Heavy Reading (www.heavyreading.com).
10GBase-T Hits the Streets details and analyzes 10GBase-T PHY devices, controller/MAC devices and 10GBase-T adapters, identifying the key requirements and highlighting the advantages they hold for equipment manufacturers and users. It also reviews vendor strategies and surveys component features, performance and flexibility. It covers more than 40 devices and adapters and profiles 10 vendors in this important market.

"Global Internet traffic continues to grow rapidly with video services driving exponential growth in both broadband and wireless networks," says Simon Stanley, research analyst for Heavy Reading Components Insider and author of the report. "A growing number of users are choosing 10GBase-T interfaces with twisted pair cables in place of SFP+ modules and optical cables."
When the first 10GBase-T PHYs started shipping there were several start-ups developing 10GBase-T solutions, Stanley says. "Following significant consolidation, semiconductor vendors continue to make significant investments, including lower power devices for 10GBase-T using 28nm technology," he adds. "The success of vendors and the 10GBase-T market in general will depend on the 40nm devices and solutions covered in this report and on a successful transition to 28nm for the next generation of 10GBase-T PHY and integrated controller/MAC and 10GBase-T PHY devices."
