Pulse Electronics Launches Integrated Connector Module Family for 10GBASE-T Ethernet Switches

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--

Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE:PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, announces the launch of a new integrated connector module (ICM) platform for 10GBASE-T (10 gigabit over twisted-pair) switches. Pulse's (News - Alert) 10 gig ICMs are qualified with leading 10GBASE-T silicon vendors, meeting their stringent requirements and facilitating the implementation of 10GBASE-T in large enterprises and cloud data centers. The family includes the four most common port configurations: 2x2, 2x4, 2x6, and 2x8, available with solder through-hole or press fit pin technology. Pulse's 10 gig ICMs and application support enable system designers to eliminate extensive qualification, speeding time to market for their products.

The Pulse 10 gig ICMs have a patented shielding system that prevents noise interference from adjacent ports, ensuring optimal data transmission. The ICMs are tuned to have flat insertion loss curves and excellent return loss performance over 10GBASE-T frequencies. They meet IEEE (News - Alert) 802an and UL 60950 requirements. Unique to this family is a light pipe that replaces integrated LEDs. With this new design, customers can change LED specifications without having to change the ICM, which streamlines procurement because the same part can be used on multiple systems. This new platform also has the flexibility to support 1 gig or 10 gig magnetic designs with the same volumetric footprint.

According to Crehan Research, 10 gigabit Ethernet switch ports will enjoy a four-fold increase over the next five years as 10GBASE-T technology is being adopted by a majority of data centers for use in server access and switch port connections. "We expect that 1GBASE-T will be a key driver of the strong ramp in 10 gigabit Ethernet switch ports over the coming years, and its growth should significantly outpace that of the market," said Seamus Crehan, president of Crehan Research.

"Pulse's 10 gig ICM family is a critical element in the propagation of 10GBASE-T technology," explained Chad Oblak, product manager, Pulse Electronics. "It is extremely difficult to design a 10 gig ICM that meets the IEEE and system EMI requirements, and it is even more difficult to manufacture 10 gig ICMs in high volume with a consistent and high level of quality. Major switch manufacturers recognize and endorse Pulse's expertise and ability to support this technology."

Pulse Electronics has invested in the development of products to enable Ethernet LAN technologies for over 25 years, since 1 mbps Star Lan was introduced in 1986. This new platform is the most advanced platform Pulse has developed for the switching market.

Samples and prices are available upon request. Delivery is 8 - 10 weeks. More information can be found on the 10 gig 2xN platform guide, on the Pulse Electronics website at http://productfinder.pulseeng.com/products/datasheets/J440.pdf.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
