LSI has new chips that promise substantial energy savings in network switching, up to 30 percent if the company’s estimates hold true. The company’s new gigabit Ethernet (GbE) PHY silicon is “the industry’s lowest-power GbE technology in the smallest size,” according to LSI.
This not only enables OEM’s to kick out power saving networking gear, they’ll require fewer materials to do it. A win-win on both the energy efficiency and IT sustainability fronts.
If you happen to be at Interop in Las Vegas next week (May 17-21, 2009), you can visit LSI and get more info, perhaps even a glimpse of the new silicon.
