Building bigger pipes

The Naval Research Laboratory in Washington is testing a 10-gigabit asynchronous transfer mode port card offered by the networking division of Marconi plc, London. For the demonstration, multiple 1.6 gigabit-per-second streams of high-definition video were run through the port, which interfaced with a Marconi's BXR-48000 switch router. The company sees a market for this capability in agencies looking to upgrade their digital subscriber line, frame relay and ATM networks, as well as in the Defense Department, which could use the solution to transmit large amounts of encrypted information.
