100 gigabits per second over copper?

According to Penn State engineers, transmission rates of 100 gigabits per second are possible today over copper. But only on distances of less than 100 meters. And only with high-end Category 7 copper cables. These Ethernet cables are made up of four pairs of twisted wires shielded to reduce crosstalk. The Penn State technology could provide an alternative to glass fiber optics cables in computer datacenters where distances between systems are not too big. In other words, it would be possible to interconnect servers inside a building at speeds similar to the ones provided by more expensive fiber optic cabling.

Dell announces PowerVault expansion card

Dell Computer announced an expansion card Monday that improves some of its PowerVault 750N and 755N storage systems, giving those that attach to servers by ordinary Ethernet networks the ability to connect with high-speed Fibre Channel networks. The latter technology makes a storage system appear to a server to be connected just like an internal hard drive. The new product--the result of Dell's partnership with storage giant EMC--is designed to smooth over differences between Ethernet-based network-attached storage (NAS) and Fibre Channel-based storage area networks (SANs). The card costs just under $2,500, said Matthew Brisse, product manager for the Dell-EMC product lines. --Stephen Shankland

Cisco to furnish Dubai Internet City

Cisco Systems will furnish telecom gear to Dubai Internet City, the companies announced Tuesday. Dubai Internet City(DIC) is a high-tech office park in Dubai, a city that is part of the United Arab Emirates, which shares borders with Saudi Arabia. Cisco will supply a variety of Internet gear to the project, such as its 124000 and 10700 series of routers, which will enable DIC tenant companies to have access to high-speed Ethernet connections. The Dubai government-supported venture aims to attract foreign tech companies to set up offices at DIC by offering perks such as relaxed labor and taxation laws. DIC's technology infrastructure includes servers from Sun Microsystems and cables from Lucent Technologies. --Sam Ames, Special to ZDNet News

Intel dishes up new networking chips

Intel announced a chip that lets server- and network-card manufacturers build two 1-gigabit-per-second Ethernet ports into their servers. Most servers today come with network connections one tenth that speed. In addition to the two-port 82546EB chip for servers, Intel released the one-port 82545EM gigabit Ethernet controller chip for workstations and the one-port 82540EM for desktop computers. The chips, currently still in prototype stage, will cost $89.95, $59.95 and $34.95 each. The workstation and server models support the higher-speed PCI-X data-communication standard. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
