Fiber-optic switch

The EtherRing switch supports multiple common 10Base-T and 100Base-TX ports and performs standard Ethernet local switching on each port. The unit is protocol-independent and supports all Ethernet protocols, including tcp/ip, ipx, NetBeui, Netware, and Appletalk. The switch increases the capacity of the network by allowing all bits transmitted to be used for data. It allows incremental network expansion and segmentation through its scalable architecture, and eliminates the need for manually maintained router tables, since EtherRing switching is self-learning and maintenance-free. The switch can be installed stand-alone over a dedicated fiber or as a channel with the DV6000 2.4-Gbit/sec fiber-optic transmission system.
