Kanata, Ontario-based Newbridge Networks Corp has added the 36170 MainStreet ATMnet Backbone Switch to its existing Asynchronous Mode portfolio. Current Asynchronous Mode products include the 36150 MainStreet ATMnet Access system and the Vivid range of Asynchronous Mode local network offerings. The 36170 is a high-capacity Asynchronous Mode switch with modular architecture, aimed at backbone deployment for both public and private networks, says the company. The switch is said to support a variety of Asynchronous Mode interfaces including T1/E1, T3/E3, OC3/STM1, OC12/STM4, and has a total throughput capacity of up to 102.4Gbps. Its basic architecture incorporates a broadcast matrix with output buffer control, which, according to the company, supports full broadcast and multicast capabilities; the system also incorporates an intelligent management algorithm called Smart, Scalable Multi-priority Allocation of Resources and conTrol, which apparently guarantees that Quality of Service objectives are achieved. Newbridge says that the system is fully standards-compliant, including NEBS and ATM Forum UNI Version 3.0. It will be introduced with a total of 96 interface slots, each said to be capable of single OC3 or multiple T3/E3 or T1/E1 termination. The switch is to ship in the fourth quarter 1994; initial deployment will be with existing Newbridge customers. No prices have been given for it as yet.
