The IC will enable enterprises to cost-effectively migrate to multi-Gigabit Ethernet networking infrastructure as a simple retro-fit, taking legacy Ethernet CAT5e cabling infrastructures beyond their typical 1Gbps bandwidth. The Alaska devices can be coupled with Marvell’s Prestera switch families to provide a comprehensive solution that is enabling the transition to the multi-Gigabit campus environment. From 8-port smart and managed switches for the small and midsized business (SMB) industry to 24- and 48-port enterprise access switches, the Prestera DX family offers a complete portfolio of  2.5/5 Gbps switch solutions. For 802.11ac and 802.11ax WLAN access points, Marvell’s ARMADA embedded processors integrated with the latest ARM-based technology can connect to a companion device of the Alaska M 88E2180 transceiver, the Alaska M 88E2110 transceiver, to deliver 2.5/5 Gbps bandwidth, meeting the demand for Wi-Fi network speeds beyond 1 Gbps and the move to 2.5/5GBASE-T. While most vendors currently offer solutions leveraging 10 Gbps technology for 2.5/5 Gbps operation, resulting in an excessive power overhead, the new Marvell devices are specifically targeted at 5GBASE-T/ 2.5GBASE-T / 1000BASE-T / 100BASE-TX / 10BASE-Te Ethernet designs. The Alaska M 88E2110 device single-port five-speed multi-Gigabit PHY is supplied in a 7x11mm FCBGA package. Marvell’s 88E21xx transceivers are sampling now and will be available globally in Q3 2017
