Schaumberg, Illinois-based Motorola Inc has announced expanded local-to-wide area network internetworking and Bandwidth management capabilities for its 6520 Multimedia Periphery Router or MPRouter, and its 6520 Office Router. The features include support for RFC 877/1356, RFC 1294/1490 and a feature dubbed LAN View. The Bandwidth features include Dial on Demand and Bandwidth on Demand, as well as Static route Internet Packet Exchange, which is said to eliminate the need to advertise Routing Information Protocol or Service Advertisement Protocol, SAP, updates on the wide area network. Support for RFC 877/1356 is said to provide interoperability of Internet Protocol traffic with front-end processing equipment and backbone routers over X25, while RFC 1294/1490 provides interoperability of Internet Protocol and Internet Packet Exchange over Frame Relay networks. LAN View is said to enable several physical wide area network ports to share the same Internet Protocol Subnet address to simplify configuration. Dial on Demand for Internet Protocol and Internet Packet Exchange is available over dial lines, X25 switched virtual circuits, or integral ISDN B channels, says Motorola. Dial on Demand provides instant additional dial-up bandwidth for Internet Protocol file transfer if there is congestion. RFC 877/1356 and On Demand Switched Virtual Circuit support over X.25 will ship in this quarter. Dial on Demand, Bandwidth on Demand and LAN View will be available in the first quarter next year with price depending on configuration.
