Woven Systems Raises $20 Million for 10 GigE Fabric Silicon

Woven Systems, a start-up based in Santa Clara, California, raised $20 million in venture funding for its 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GE) fabric solutions.

Woven's EFX 1000 Ethernet Fabric Switch recently completed customer trials and is now in production. The 10 GE switch supports 144 non-blocking ports in an efficient 10 rack unit chassis. The company said its design delivers resilient, multi-path fabrics scaling to over 4000 10 GE edge ports.

The funding was led by MDV-Mohr Davidow Ventures and included existing investors, Goldman Sachs and Palomar Ventures. The latest round of funding raises the total investment in the company to $35 million.
