EVE introduced e-zTest 10GbE, which is a 10-Gigabit Ethernet validation platform for their ZeBu (Zero Bugs) family of system-on-chip (SoC) hardware-assisted verification platforms. The e-zTest 10GbE software is a transaction-based environment for high-speed validation of 10GbE functions in network routers, switches and controllers, and SoC application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) containing 10GbE ports.
Microsemi recently published a white paper: Using Power over Ethernet to Reduce Network Energy Consumption. As you can tell from the title of the technical paper, the article is about how companies can reduce costs by using energy-efficient Power over Ethernet (PoE) midspan technology. These systems implement four-pair powering and built-in power-management capabilities while minimizing idle power consumption through the use of smaller internal power supplies.
