Digital Networks has extended ATM capabilities to its DEC Hub 900 and workgroup users with the introduction of the VN Switch 900 and ATM Switch 900 product groups.
These advanced switching solutions allow the integration of multiple high-speed technologies, providing 'anything to anything' technology and switching among Ethernet, fast Ethernet, FDDI and ATM. The modules can be used as standalone solutions in the hub or stackable in racks.
Graham Hardy, European product marketing director at the vendor's network products business unit, said they are a testament to the scalability of Digital's DEC Hub design.
'They represent a flexible, high-quality, low-cost Ethernet to multi-Lan switching solution which meets the needs of network managers in every kind of organisation,' he said. 'No other vendor offers such a simple migration path to high-performance networking.'
The products offer switching features such as IP switching and comprehensive Vlan support. Distributed routing will be available through a firmware upgrade.
The VN Switch 900 product group includes the EX, with 12 switched Ethernet ports and two fast Ethernet ports, the EA with 12 switched Ethernet ports and one ATM port, the EF with 12 switched Ethernet ports and one FDDI port pair, and the EE with 24 switched Ethernet ports.
The two ATM switch 900 products both have two front-insertable modular ATM Modphy interfaces, the 900F has six fixed 155 Mbps multimode fibre SC type ports, and the 900T has six fixed 155Mbps UTP-5 ports.
