Force10 Awarded Patent for Terabit Backplane Design

Force10 Networks has been awarded a U.S. patent for the high capacity backplane that powers its TeraScale E-Series switch/routers. Force10's passive copper backplane leverages advanced multi-layer design and manufacturing techniques to scale to 5 Terabits per second. Force10 said the design enables network operators to migrate from 10 Gigabit Ethernet to both 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet. The company now has more than 50 patents and patents pending for its innovations in terabit scale switching and routing.
