IronBridge Networks, a developer of optically based terabit routers, will demonstrate its terabit router's virtual routing capability, scalability and network management features at the SUPERnet 2001, held at the Santa Clara, California Convention Center from Jan. 14-17.

IronBridge Networks, a developer of optically based terabit routers, will demonstrate its terabit router's virtual routing capability, scalability and network management features at the SUPERnet 2001, held at the Santa Clara, California Convention Center from Jan. 14-17.

IronBridge SwiftCOR virtual backbone routers logically subdivide each physical router, expanding its capability to direct Internet traffic to the equivalent of 64 independent routers. SwiftCOR will execute peering and packet forwarding at OC-48 (optical carrier) rates across a simulated Internet backbone created by an Agilent Technologies' RouterTester, a carrier-class Internet protocol (IP) test system to create realistic Internet traffic conditions for testing high-speed gigabit and terabit routers.

The SwiftCOR system, launched in September 2000, is now in beta testing with two major telecommunications companies, including Energis, the largest Internet backbone provider in the United Kingdom.

IronBridge will also display ways in which network operators can use its SwiftSight network management system to monitor and manage their network. The demonstration shows how SwiftSight's centralized management system, featuring a graphical user interface (GUI) and a Command Line Interface (CLI) with familiar syntax, which makes backbone network operations more efficient and secure.
