NET Supplies its NX5010 to Department of Defense

Network Equipment Technologies will supply its new NX5010 high-speed multi-service aggregation and switching platform to an agency in the Department of Defense (DoD). The initial order for 10 units will be used to provide continuous transport of time-sensitive secure applications at line-rate OC-192 speeds between disparate network locations. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  • The NX5010 was jointly developed by NET and Bay Microsystems. It is offers the ability to convert 10 Gbps to a wide area connection on a very small a foot print (2RU). It has been tested extensively by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). Following the trials, NRL awarded NET and Bay an initial order for multiple units, which are targeted for use within NRL's test bed for Advanced Network and Advanced Terabit Storage Area Networking trials.
