Teak Technologies 10 Gig Congestion Free Ethernet Switch

Teak Technologies previewed its pioneering 10 Gig Congestion-Free Ethernet (CFE) switching solution today. The idea mentioned here is to have Ethernet switches collaborate with each other and thereby respond reactively to congestion events rather than perform individually in isolated islands. They mention that the average end-to-end goodput is much better than current 10 Gig Ethernet switches. I am not very sure how this "collaborative technology" works, and no details are available on their website. Comments invited on how this technology works.

Moreover, Neterion announced today that they will partner with Teak Technologies, and provide them with ASIC to deliver an integrated solution to IBM's Blade Centers as part of the Blade.org effort.
