Xyplex Inc, based in Littleton, Massachusetts, has announced a new bridge-router module for its Network 9000 Routing Hub, which is said to provide high-speed communications between lower-speed Ethernet devices and Asynchronous Transfer Mode-attached devices. The module 520 is designed to connect an external Asynchronous Transfer Mode switch used as the basis for a network backbone, to the 9000, and comprises two modules: a hot-swappable input-output module, and the 401 bridge-router processor module. Connected to the 9000, it is said to enable three 10Base-T Ethernet midplane segments to act as feeder nodes to Asynchronous Transfer Mode, or to bridge-route from one to another. The product initially supports only Permanent Virtual Circuits, but will be upgraded to support Switched Virtual Circuits. Local network protocols supported include Internet Protocol, IPX, DECnet, AppleTalk and Open Systems Interconnection. Costing $9,000, it is out now.
