This technology relies on ATM signalling with further delays as LAN Emulation
Clients join the various LANE Emulation services.
Of primary concern to us was interoperability, by using Soft-ATM for the signalling, LAN emulation
and ILMI functions we have insured GigaBlade will interoperate with any standards-based ATM network," Mr.
An optional LAN emulation
client software addition enables the MAC-100 to participate in ATM Forum-based LAN emulation
environments over the ATM wide area network.
The new Ethernet modules have their own LAN Emulation
Client (LEC) software that is usually associated directly with the desktop device.
It features ATM, Fast Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet uplinks and supports Layer 3 switching, LAN emulation
, multicast, directory-enabled services, dynamic buffering and both SNMP and RMON management support.
