MorethanIP was founded in 2000 as a GmbH (ltd.) in Munich Germany by three senior Telecommunication Engineers. MorethanIP is a privately owned and profitable design and IP (Intellectual Property) house concentrating on high-speed communications, serial backplane and embedded system technologies. This includes design, specification and implementation of standard products, system architectures and customer-specific solutions. Combining its methodology with proven technical expertise from more than ten years of industry experience in Hardware and Software design, MorethanIP generates rapid design cycles to meet time-to-market, functional and budgetary objectives.
Initially, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) is used by network managers to provide high-speed, local backbone interconnection between large-capacity switches, as it enables Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Network Service Providers (NSPs) to create very high-speed links at a very low cost, between co-located, carrier-class switches and routers. Now, the technology also allows the construction of MANs and WANs, which connect geographically, dispersed LANs between campuses or points of presence (PoPs). These networks use dark fiber, dark wavelengths, or SONET (synchronous optical network) connections. 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) provides compatibility with the installed OC-192 SONET rings for MAN and WAN.
Low-Latency Anyspeed Ethernet MAC Core designed to comply with the IEEE802.3 specifications for 10/100/1000Mbps and 10Gbps meeting the requirements for both WAN / MAN and LAN connectivity. Its flexible rate design also allows for industry standard 2.5Gbps operation.
The 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet MAC Core is designed to comply with the IEEE802.3ba Specification. The Core can be used in either NIC (Network Interface Card) or Ethernet Switching applications. A set of configuration registers is available to dynamically set the Core to terminate and form MAC frames (NIC application) or to pass MAC frames without modification to the User application or to the Ethernet line (Switching application). When used in NIC or Switching applications, the Core provides support for IEEE managed objects, IETF MIB-II and RMON for management applications (e.g. SNMP).
