BAY TAKES ASYNCHRONOUS TRANSFER Mode INTO THE WIDE AREA VIA ADC

By CBR Staff Writer

Santa Clara, California-based Bay Networks Inc has announced strategic relationships with ADC Kentrox Inc and Interphase Corp which are intended to expand its Asynchronous Transfer Mode portfolio. The technology and co-marketing agreement with ADC Kentrox is designed to extend Bay’s Asynchronous Mode technology into the wide area: the two will co-market ADC’s ATM Access Concentrator 3 product set, which was conceived to aggregate and transport speech, video and data at speeds from 56Kbps to 155Mbps across the wide area network. To try to increase the integration of the AAC-3 with Bay’s equipment, the two companies will also work to integrate Bay’s Integrated Private Network to Network Interface – Integrated-PNNI implementation with the ADC product. Integrated-PNNI is the ATM Forum’s planned standard for ensuring Quality of Service routing through Asynchronous Mode internetworks consisting of both Asynchronous and non-Asynchronous Transfer Mode equipment. The companies will also work to enable the management of the AAC-3 from Bay’s Optivity network management system. The deal with Interphase is rather less complex, and will see Bay reselling the full range of Interphase Asynchronous Mode network adaptor boards, which are designed for high-speed access to servers across an Asynchronous Mode backbone. Bay says that it is currently undertaking interoperability testing between both companies’ products and its own Asynchronous Mode equipment.
