3Com Selects Agere's GigE Chips

3Com is using Agere's Ethernet switching chipsets in its Baseline Plus family of switches. Specifically, 3Com is using Agere's previously announced ET3K, a single-chip 48-port Gigabit Ethernet switch device, and its Octal TruePHY 1081, which features low power and exceeds industry standard requirements for reach and error-free performance by approximately 40 percent. Agere's TruePHY architecture also offers advanced cable diagnostics, providing the ability to pinpoint a break in 100 meters or more standard of category 5 cabling.
