Packet Engines Sells Technology

Network Peripherals Inc. has signed an agreement to use technology developed by Packet Engines Inc. of Spokane in its computer network switches.

Like Packet Engines, Network Peripherals is involved in developing products that link desk-top computers into networks using a technology called ethernet.

Packet Engines is a leader in the development of equipment and intellectual property that will allow those networks to operate at speeds 10 times faster than the current technological standard of 100 megabits per second. It is in a race with a number of other companies world-wide to capture the market for this 1,000 megabit - or one gigabit - technology.

Network Peripherals, based in Milpitas, Calif., will use intellectual property developed by Packet Engines in its efforts to build switches that will allow networks to switch among 10 megabit, 100 megabit and 1,000 megabit ethernet capabilities.
