Systimax Solutions, a division of Commscope Inc. is now a principal member of the Ethernet Alliance, an industry group dedicated to expanding Ethernet technology.

“With the 10 Gigabit Ethernet standard expected to be ratified this summer, the Alliance will have a host of new technologies to promote and support,” said Luc Adriaenssens, senior vice president of R&D and Technology.

Unlike past alliances that support single IEEE 802 Ethernet projects, the Ethernet Alliance will exist for as long as it remains relevant to IEEE 802 Ethernet technology.

Its mission is to support IEEE 802 Ethernet projects in a number of ways, including cultivating efforts to define and develop new Ethernet technologies; and educating Ethernet users on their choices and implementations for various applications.

Moreover, the Ethernet Alliance removes the barrier of start-up and organizational issues that surround individually dedicated efforts, potentially saving both time and money.
