Ethernet has become a ubiquitous technology throughout the world for providing network connectivity. It is available in nearly every computer and is widely accepted as the switching protocol of choice for networking systems in both enterprise and wide area networks. Over the past 30 years, Ethernet has demonstrated its capability as an efficient, cost effective, and easy to deploy layer two networking technology. Now with data center capabilities being forced to expand to handle the rapid growth in transaction processing volumes and "big data" cloud computing applications, high-speed 10G and 40G Ethernet networks are being deployed to provide vital high performance data center connectivity.
The Intelligent Bandwidth Exchange (IBEx™) Ethernet WAN acceleration product family utilizes Bay Microsystems’ proprietary packet and transport processing technology to provide seamless Ethernet Data Center Bridging (DCB) fabric extension functionality through wide area network adaptation and tunneling capabilities over a variety of protocols. The IBEx Ethernet product portfolio supports and interoperates with virtually any network topology and data rate, thereby enabling unencumbered, line-rate 1/10/40G Ethernet extension over a diverse array of high-performance wide area network protocols and deployment scenarios.
Up to four 10G Ethernet links over SONET OC-768/SDH STM-256 or ITU-T G.709/G.975.1-I.4 OTU3
