NETWORK EQUIPMENT UPS THE SCALE OF IDNX WIDE-AREA NETWORKS WITH SOFTWARE, FROM 250 TO 10,000 NODES

By CBR Staff Writer

Redwood City, California-based Network Equipment Technologies Inc has announced a software release for the Network Equipment IDNX Communications Resource Manager. According to Network Equipment, the release increases the potential size of IDNX, Integrated Digital Network Exchange, wide-area networks from 250 nodes to well beyond 10,000 nodes. The new feature, SuperWAN, forms part of the Integrated Exchange software Version 13.x1, and is said to enable network managers and global carriers to build large multi-service networks. According to the company, SuperWAN offers users an addressing scheme that enables partitioning of global networks into subsections it calls domains. Each domain, which consists of up to 250 nodes, can be segmented as a secure sub-network with the distributed intelligence features, such as distributed dynamic routing across the network, present in current Integrated Exchange networks, says the firm. Network Equipment says the domains can also be configured to enable traffic from other domains to traverse or terminate in the nodes. This is said to enable a network provider to establish an Integrated Digital Network Exchange SuperWAN that enables it to lease custom services to different companies on secure sub-networks while also enabling direct communications links between the companies. Additionally, SuperWAN will enable networks to be segmented for call management or isolation control by geographic region, organisational hierarchy or security needs, says the firm. Users can select these software-defined parameters and they can be changed as required says the firm. Software release 13.x1 is available to existing users at no charge.
