We are a fabless semiconductor company that designs, manufactures (through subcontractors) and sells high-performance interconnect products and solutions primarily based on the Ethernet and InfiniBand standards. Our products facilitate efficient data transmission between servers, storage systems, communications infrastructure equipment and other embedded systems. We operate our business globally and offer products to customers at various levels of integration. The products we offer include integrated circuits ("ICs"), adapter cards, switch systems, cables, modules, software, services and accessories. Together these products form a total end-to-end integrated networking solution focused on computing, storage and communication applications used in multiple markets, including cloud, Web 2.0, High Performance Computing ("HPC"), Big Data, machine learning, storage, telecommunications, financial services, and enterprise data centers ("EDC"). These solutions increase performance, application efficiency and improve return on investment. Through the successful development and implementation of multiple generations of our products, we have established significant expertise and competitive advantages.
As a leader in developing multiple generations of high-speed interconnect solutions, we have established strong relationships with our customers. Our products are incorporated in servers and associated networking solutions produced by the largest server vendors. We supply our products to leading storage and communications infrastructure equipment vendors. Additionally, our products are used in embedded solutions.
We are a leader in high performance Ethernet interconnects, including adapters, switches, and optical and copper cables and transceivers. We have gained significant market share in the 25Gb/s and greater market segment and are the leading provider of adapters at these speeds. We work closely with key cloud, Web 2.0, server, storage, machine learning and telco customers to develop hardware and software that accelerate workloads and make data centers more efficient. This deep engagement with our customers enables us to deliver unique acceleration capabilities and thereby differentiate our products from our competitors. This provides us with the opportunity to gain share in the Ethernet market as users upgrade from 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s directly to 25/40/50 or 100Gb/s.
