Net Insight expands Nimbra interfacing capabilities
AT NAB2009, Net Insight revealed its 3 x IP/Ethernet Trunk Module, its latest trunk interface for the Nimbra One and Nimbra 300 series of multiservice switches, extending the Nimbra platform’s scope by enabling services transport over any network. This transport solution features multiservice operation, optional intermediate switching and signal regeneration for enhanced QoS preservation. It lets operators choose to create IP media networks over existing IP, SDH/SONET, WDM or fiber.
The Ethernet Switching Feature License for the Nimbra 600 8x GigE Access Module also debuted at NAB. The feature lets up to eight Ethernet switches be configured on each board, each with its own MAC learning tables and VLAN space. Each configured switch can then allocate any number of switch ports from a set of eight physical and 247 logical Ethernet ports. Logical ports correspond to Ethernet channels of configurable bandwidth, connecting to other Ethernet switches or physical ports in the Nimbra network. Each Ethernet switch can also be configured for completely transparent transport of packets, port-to-port.
