Bay Unveils Routing Improvements

Bay Networks yesterday unveiled software enhancements to its line of routing products that will help customers transport SNA data over TCP/IP networks.

Bay will now offer customers RSVP for Data Link Switching, which will let an administrator reserve bandwidth by time of day, by device, or at system start-up for SNA traffic across an IP network. It will also provide priority queuing, which lets an administrator prioritize all queues, apportion bandwidth by percentage, and deliver data in priority order.

Another feature is the ability for administrators to traverse an IP network while still being able to access enterprise applications via an Advanced Peer-to-Peer-Network backbone. Other features for the offerings include IP multicasting and improved scalability and availability via high-performance routing.

The new offerings show Bay is continuing to offer customers capabilities that are comparable to what Cisco Systems and IBM can deliver, says Dave Passmore, an analyst with NetReference Inc. in Sterling, Va.

The company also plans to release products that will deliver host-access connections via gateway and ATM solutions, and integrated management of both IP and SNA networks.
