Data Communications will soon release the additions
to its LA-110 family of IADs (Integrated Access Devices)
and a new G.SHDSL (Symmetric High Bit Rate Digital Subscriber)
modem. The LA-110 is an ATM IAD that allows service
providers to offer voice, LAN, and data over a single
access line to small and medium-sized businesses.
It is possible to connect it to the existing DSLAMs
(Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) over ADSL
(Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) or G.SHDSL and
is interoperable with voice gateways. It has the capacity
to support four analog or four ISDN S0 voice channels
or one sub-E1 port, one data port and an additional
10/100BaseT LAN port. It can also support up to 2 Mbps
on the uplink.
to RAD LA-110 will offer ATM multiservice and management
capabilities that guarantee QoS and traffic shaping.
These will allow carriers to offer SLA service to their
It can support AAL1 for CES (Circuit Emulation Service)
and DB-CES (Dynamic Bandwidth CES) over a fractional
E1 interface. Along with AAL2 for voice traffic and
AAL5 for data traffic, LA-110 offers services over ATM
that include Ethernet and IP in accordance with RFC1483,
and Frame Relay inter-working in accordance with FRF.5
The ASMi-52 modem uses ITU-T G.991.2 standard SHDSL
technology which enables carriers provide voice and
data services over long distance copper infrastructure.
This is suitable for both data and voice networks. It
has the capacity to support symmetric data rates up
to 2.048 Mbps.

HP India recently announced the launch of its new midrange
storage solutions which include NAS 8000, SANlink and
SANmaster solution, HP Disk System 2300 and 2405, HP
Surestore Tape Autoloader 1/8, and HP Surestore Switches.
The NAS 8000 supports Windows, Unix and Linux clients
and is meant to help enable IT managers increase departmental
and site storage without bringing down servers or disrupting
client access to network data.
The HP Surestore SANlink is a SAN solution that moves
and controls information. The HP Surestore SANmaster
information system provides remote monitoring and can
help manage your enterprise's storage network.
The Surestore Disk System 2300 is an Ultra 160 SCSI
storage system that enables improved system uptime through
hot-swappable components as well as fully redundant
power supplies, fans, and bus control cards. According
to HP, the Disk System 2300 improves productivity by
ensuring that system users can always access data stored
on the system, even during upgrades and repairs.
The Disk System 2405 is targeted at midrange to enterprise
customers who require a scalable, reliable and high-performance
2 GB fiber channel storage system. It can be deployed
as a disk system or be used as add-on storage for the
HP Surestore Virtual Array 7400. Each enclosure can
hold up to 15 drives, providing over 1 TB of capacity.
The Surestore Tape Autoloader 1/8 provides 320 GB of
cost-effective, easy-to-install, automated data protection
for small to medium sized businesses. The 1/8 occupies
only 2U-rack space and comes with Omniback II backup
The FC 1 Gb/2 Gb Entry Switch 8B is a low-cost switch
fiber channel connectivity to a NAS, SAN or cluster
HP claims that its storage virtualization strategy allows
customers to increase the efficiency of their data by
optimizing underutilized storage resources. And HP's
FSAM (Federated Storage Area Management) strategy gives
customers the ability to increase the storage efficiency
by ten times.

has introduced a range of enterprise VoIP Solutions
that comprise OEM Analog VoIP Gateway Subsystems, PCI
VoIP Communication Board, and Digital Media Gateway
The MP-104/108/124 OEM Analog Gateway system provides
the technology for connecting legacy telephone systems
with a new IP-based PBX architecture. It connects IP-PBX
systems with analog telephone sets, modems and fax machines.
The subsystems span a range of configurations from 4
to 24 ports and comply with new VoIP protocols like
H.323, MGCP, MEGACO and SIP. It also supports dual 10/100BaseT
Ethernet ports. MP-104 supports four extensions or trunk
lines and is best suited for SMEs and branch office
solutions. MP-108 supports eight telephone sets or PBX
analog trunk lines and MP-124 can support 24 extension
Next in the series is AudioCoded TP-240 PCI VoIP Communication
Board. This is a solution for trunking gateways to the
PSTN and integrated gateways for IP-PBXs. It also serves
as an all-in-one communication server, unified messaging
server, voice mail server, and IVR (Interactive Voice
Response Units). TP-240 provides 128 ports for voice,
fax or data.
It uses AudioCodes' VoIP DSP (Digital Signal Processing)
chips and utilizes G.168 compliant echo cancellation,
lost packet interpolation, and jitter buffer control.
Other features include G.723.1, G.729A, GSM-FR, and
proprietary NetCoder voice compression. The board supports
G3 fax relay/bypass, modem relay/bypass, silence suppression,
and DTMF detection/generation.
TP-240 is a solution for transmitting voice and fax
traffic over IP packet networks that allows enterprises
to migrate from enterprise legacy systems to a new VoIP
MP-200 Media Gateway Subsystem is also a new offering
which is a stand-alone digital gateway device, scalable
up to four E1 or four T1 trunks for a total of 120 ports.
It utilizes echo cancellation, voice compression, silence
compression, and comfort noise generation. It can be
used in a corporate VPN and in centralized VoIP applications
like unified communication and digital trunks. The MP-200
also provides 10/100BaseT Ethernet ports for connecting
to the LAN.

has introduced RainWall which is an OPSEC (Open Platform
for Security) certified high-availability load balancing
solution for Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 gateways and
appliances. It includes a patented clustering technology,
RAIN (Reliable Array of Independent Nodes). RainWall
is designed to improve the reliability and performance
of mission-critical applications. It clusters multiple
VPN-1/FireWall-1 gateways to provide redundancy and
increase capacity. It installs directly on the Check
Point firewall, and does not require any additional
hardware. RainWall eliminates the firewall or VPN gateway
as a single point of failure when network downtime is
not acceptable, thereby assuring continuous service
On detection of failure it instantly shifts all traffic
from the failed gateway to a healthy RainWall node in
the cluster. As per company information RainWall distributes
traffic across multiple gateways. The load balancing
feature measures each gateways traffic load in real-time,
and adjusts traffic flow to maximize total throughput.
It scales linearly, increasing firewall and VPN capacity
as nodes are added to the cluster, so you can grow without
replacing existing hardware.
RainWall manages a set of virtual cluster IP addresses
(VIPs) so the gateway's IP address is always reachable
even when one or more of the VPN-1/FireWall-1 servers
are not. Further, it offers an intuitive Web-based configuration
wizard that simplifies the task of configuring multiple
nodes. A Java-based console with encrypted communications
allows monitoring and managing clustered nodes.

STORAGE FILE SYSTEM
SANPoint File System is a SAN file system for Windows
2000. The file system allows computing nodes to directly
access data at SAN speed as a result of which performance
and scalability of SAN environment increases. As the
system runs on Windows file system (NTFS) and gives
clusters of Windows 2000 system shared direct access
to disk, it bypasses the latency and congestion associated
with retrieving data over servers connected to a LAN.
The file system can be used for data and storage intensive
operations like multimedia editing, publishing and pre-press,
and similarly loaded workgroup-computing environments.
By making use of the Direct Disk Access (DDA) technology
and industry standard network protocols, administrators
can meet the growth in Web traffic by simply adding
more low cost HTTP servers. The SANPoint file system
also works with Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) and
VERITAS Cluster Server (VCS) to enhance the availability
of critical data.
