Networks globally are undergoing a major change. For many, this entails a migration to packet-based Ethernet. Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LANs) and is predominantly used in networking technology for today’s IP traffic in carrier and enterprise networks. Ethernet delivers bandwidth at low-latencies, equivalent to fibre solutions, and is ideal for for the rigorous demands of data centre applications. XENON offers a wide range of Ethernet products from the following leading vendors:
