STRATACOM ANNOUNCES LOW-SPEED ASYNCHRONOUS TRANSFER PRODUCTS FOR BPX/AXIS SWITCH FOR CELL AND FRAME ACCESS

By CBR Staff Writer

San Jose, California-based StrataCom Inc has unveiled a suite of low-speed Asynchronous Transfer Mode products for its BPX/AXIS Asynchronous Mode switch. According to the company, the offerings provide users with both cell and frame-based access to Asynchronous Transfer Mode, using a variety of interfaces with complete interoperability between them. The products are led by four- and eight-port T1 (1.544Mbps) Asynchronous Mode modules, which are aimed at applications that do not necessarily require broadband bandwidth, said the firm. It includes among these the connection of multiprotocol routers, the extension of campus Asynchronous Mode data network architectures, and the linking of wide area Asynchronous Transfer switches. Optional software for the eight-port T1 Asynchronous Mode module, which adds Asynchronous inverse multiplexing support, is also available. StrataCom said its inverse multiplexing interface conforms to an interim specification published by itself, but adds that it will be software-upgraded to support the ATM Forum’s final specification once that is released. The module is configurable as either a trunk between switches or for user Asynchronous Mode access. Finally, StrataCom has revealed a firmware upgrade to its existing four-port T1 Frame Relay board, which it says adds support for Asynchronous Mode Frame User Network Interface, as well as Frame Relay-to-Asynchronous Mode service interworking. The firm added that Frame User or Frame Relay protocols are configurable on a per port basis. The four-port T1 Asynchronous Mode module is out now, priced at $15,000. The eight-port module will be available in the first quarter of 1996, priced at $24,000. The optional inverse multiplexing software will be priced at $8,000 per module. Frame User Network Interface will be provided through a free software upgrade in the first quarter of 1996.
