Fujitsu 10Gb Ethernet Switches are Tolly Group Certified for Interoperability with Complimentary Switches


SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 17 / / -- Enterprise video and server applications are creating a data explosion and placing increased pressure on networking products to demonstrate interoperability with complimentary products and various industry standards. Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a leading supplier of 10-Gigabit (Gb) Ethernet switches and innovative computer products, today announced that The Tolly Group, an independent testing and strategic consulting organization retained by Fujitsu, has evaluated and certified Fujitsu's XG700 and XG2000 Ethernet switches for network interoperability. The XG series offers high-performance 10Gb Ethernet Layer-2 switching, ideal for enterprise and video server/storage applications, high-performance computing, and the Internet SCSI (iSCSI) and Networked Attached Storage (NAS) markets.

At the Terremark Worldwide, Inc. facility, a major Internet peering point for service providers and carriers, Tolly Group engineers subjected the Fujitsu XG 10Gb Ethernet switches to a series of comprehensive tests with switching solutions from 3Com(R), Alcatel-Lucent(R), Cisco Systems(R), Enterasys(R), Extreme Networks(R), Foundry Networks(R), Hewlett-Packard(R), and IBM(R). To verify interoperability with alternative switches, Fujitsu's networking solutions were tested and passed various advanced LAN services tests, including support for 802.1p/Q VLAN tag propagation, Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Jumbo Frames.

"Today's networking landscape standards are continuously changing, requiring vendors to consistently demonstrate their ability to work in best of breed environments. An open and convergent network allows managers to identify which switches and routers can fully interoperate with their existing networking devices," said Kevin Tolly, president and chief executive officer, The Tolly Group. "The Fujitsu XG 10Gb Ethernet switches went through extensive testing and successfully achieved interoperability with other tested devices."

"Fujitsu continues to deliver exceptional product innovation and design, ensuring network managers that the Fujitsu XG 10GbE switches will interoperate in their existing network," said Vic Herring, senior director, new products group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "The Fujitsu XG series of 10GbE switches allow IT professionals to build powerful and efficient systems with a compact form factor and a flexible network interface."
