back to article Solarflare claims integrated 10GBASE-T LOMs first

Fabless chip-design house Solarflare Communications is today expected to announce what it claims are the first integrated 10GBASE-T LAN-on-motherboard (LOM) controllers. The key word here is "integrated." Last November, Mellanox announced its ConnectX ENt 10GBASE-T LOM. That part, however, is a two-element package that …

When are BT rolling it out to my street, then I can get everything 10,000 times faster can't I? Why I'll be able to down load a Movie in less than 1 second.

Disclaimer

This statement ignores network latency and a few other issues to do with the laws of physics. It also ignores the efficiency of contended Ethernet connections. But then so does a lot of broadband advertising, what do I know.

6 millisecond latency?

No thanks, I'll stick to my 10mbit with 1uSec latencies.

..as last time I heard "LOM" used, it meant "Lights Out Management". Le sigh.

so weres the cheap OEM SOHO 10GigE PCI-E and routers then!

so again i ask, weres the cheap OEM SOHO 10GigE PCI-E and routers then!

and what price in real £ money +VAT are we looking at?

all the worlds Ethernet OEM's especially RTL have sat back on their 1gigE ONLY for Your mass home use for FAR to long.

we would like some of these speeds too, or at least some new 2,4, and 8GigE, alongside a cheap fully 10GigE capable 5 port+ router and a fully inclusive working generic Microsoft "Bonding" driver set for them.

so we could then massively increase our LAN PC to PC transfer and connected FreeNAS speeds by fitting several if we so choose over time into all the PCI-E capable devices we have and plugging in these new matching 10GigE SOHO routers,

most people are Not that interested in web ISP WAN speeds above a real 1 GigE per WAN in the near future as John implys OC.

just as a single example, the ability to remote LAN x264 encode our HD content over these speeds will be a large time saver FI, YMMV OC.

Slight correction

Cat6 is only supported up to 55m Cat6A/7 will work at 100m.
