BALTIMORE – NFOEC – Telco Systems, a BATM company and a leader in network edge technology and IP switching platforms, today introduced the industry's only non-blocking, all-layer Gigabit Ethernet switching solution offering up to 32 Gigabit Ethernet ports, including a physically redundant port. The combined attributes of highly efficient and comprehensive policy enforcement, unique BATM traffic shaping, and an unmatched level of modularity, make T6 an unparalleled platform for building dynamic network infrastructure. The T6 is being featured at Telco Systems' booth 5403 at NFOEC. With the new BiNOS (BATM Inter Networking Operating System), T6 offers simplified installation plus ease of operation and provisioning through a broad range of IEEE standards based administration, management, and network security features. Other T6 features that fall under the BiNOS umbrella include:* Link Aggregation - Dynamically broadens bandwidth between switches helping to circumvent possible network bottlenecks.
* Virtual LANs - Allows network administrators to improve bandwidth capabilities and reduce overhead by segmenting users into different groups.
* IGMP Multicast Support - Reduces the amount of bandwidth needed for applications like video-conferencing and online learning.
* Security and Policy Enforcement - Consists of user-defined rules that determine how, where, and when various network functions are performed.
* Quality of Service (QoS) - Ensures proper flow control and bandwidth management in a network. "One of the most important features that switches offer is their ability to conform to the needs of the network," said Dave LeBeau, president, Telco Systems. "The hardware-based implementation of BiNOS enables T6 to efficiently provide and manage precious network resources such as voice over the network, multimedia transmission, surveillance, and other mission critical applications."Telco SystemsFor more information on NFOEC, please visit the Light Reading NFOEC Site.
