Chelsio 10GEAdapters Used for New Bandwidth Records

Chelsio's 10-Gigabit Ethernet server adapters were used to set new world records for LAN bandwidth and distance at the Supercomputing 2004 conference in Pittsburgh earlier this month. The University of Tokyo shattered the world record for speed and distance of Internet communication, sending standard 1500 byte Ethernet packets more than 31,000 kilometers at more than 7 Gbps totaling 225,000 terabyte meters per second to win the SC2004 Bandwidth Challenge award for single stream distance and bandwidth. The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), together with its partners, achieved the highest aggregate bandwidth ever recorded to win the SC2004 Bandwidth Challenge award for sustained bandwidth, delivering 101 Gbps, which quadruples the previous throughput record set a year ago. Chelsio's T110 10GbE Protocol Engine provided the TCP/IP offload technology used in both the University of Tokyo's and SLAC's bandwidth challenge demonstrations.
