Waltham, MA--August 28, 1996--Plaintree Systems Inc. (Waltham, MA) introduced the WaveSwitch 1019, a low cost-per-port Ethernet switch with two Fast Ethernet ports for backbone and/or server connections. The 1019 features 16 10Base-T Ethernet ports, plus both a 100Base-TX port and a fiber optic 100Base-FX port. The FX port supports Fast Ethernet connections spanning distances as large as two km.
The SmartVIPS (intelligent virtual IP subnets) feature in the WaveSwitch 1019, advances the state-of-the-art in how virtual LANs for IP networks are formed and managed. In most IP networks, the 1019 is able to automatically determine IP subnet membership for each packet, and forward broadcast packets only to members of the same subnet. This confines broadcast domains (virtual LANs) to individual IP subnets.
Plaintree's WaveSwitch 1019 is shipping now and is priced at $5495.
