Lenovo Networks, a subsidiary of Lenovo Group Ltd, has selected Agere Systems Gigabit Ethernet solutions for use in Lenovo's networking product portfolio to be installed in medium- and large-sized businesses.

According to the press release, the company's equipment embedded with Agere's solution will feature advanced, fully managed switches powered by Agere's chipset solution that offers superior performance and cost benefits compared with any alternative technologies.

Lenovo considers the Agere's solution to be an unrivaled platform with the highest level of integration and performance in the industry, delivering 10GbE channels on a single device with transmission speed of 1Gbps. This solution not only powers delivery of unmatched multimedia and storage performance in the enterprise sector, but also enables delivery of multiple systems with the fastest time to market, said the press release.

In addition, the solution adopted by Lenovo consists of Agere's ET4148 and ET4128, as well as the Octal TruePHY 1081 device. The Octal TruePHY features low power and exceeds industry standard requirements for reach and error-free performance by approximately 40 percent. Also inherent in the TruePHY architecture is one of the industry's most advanced cable diagnostic capability, with the ability to pinpoint cable faults with precision of 100m in standard cabling.

"Agere focuses on supporting Lenovo Networks' ambition to deliver the highest cost/performance enterprise and computing networking solutions in the industry," said John Cummins, vice president of the telecommunications and enterprise networking division of Agere.
