Westborough, Massachusetts-based Proteon Inc has launched its version of the router jointly developed with IBM Corp’s Networking Systems Division (CI No 2,333). The Remote Branch Exchange 200 comes in the same configuration as the IBM one: two wide area network ports and either an Ethernet or Token Ring interface. In common with the IBM, it is to be enhanced with Integrated Services Digital Network support early next year. IBM’s DLSw, Data Link Switching is also provided, as are Bandwidth Reservation and Multicast Open Shortest Path First features. Based on Proteon’s TSA Internetworking software, the product is said to be fully compatible with the firm’s CNX and DNX families. Proteon’s pricing is in line with that of IBM: the entry-level model starts at $1,990 including basic software.
