WideBand’s ProUSA Gigabit Ethernet NICs passed the functional cable test conducted by the International Academy of Science (http://www.science.edu). The test uses a collection of 90 Category 5 cables to evaluate a product’s ability to operate without errors over the installed base of cables used in most office buildings throughout the United States.
The test was developed by the Ethernet User Alliance (EUA). “We discovered that many of today’s networking products won’t reach the 100-meter design specification without excessive errors, “ said Dr. Jay E. Potter, Secretary-General of the Alliance. “These errors manifest themselves as slow network connections. This effect is seen at network speeds of 100 Megabits per second and becomes especially significant in Gigabit networks. The Alliance eE Certification assures users that the networking products they purchase have been tested on a diversity of cable types to help ensure that the products will operate properly in buildings wired according to the Cat 5 specification.”
The ProUSA family of networking products was developed by WideBand Corporation to eliminate the need to rewire, even over 100 meter segments, since these products do not require special cabling. The task of “pulling” new cable is expensive. The cost to rewire a single facility can exceed one million dollars. The new ProUSA products will eliminate this need, resulting in substantial savings to users.
The ProUSA Gigabit NIC is noted for its high performance, 10/100/1000 full duplex capability, PCI-X support with bus speeds up to 133 MHz, and the fact that it is “Made in America”. The products are standards based, and have been tested to interoperate with other brands of networking products.
