Compressed Voice Systems
Ltd. has launched CVS (Compressed Voice System) to enable
carriers to provide quality voice services.
Features: The CVS is a high-density voice/fax compression
system designed for PTTs (Post, Telegraph, and Telecommunications)
and alternative carriers.
The solution extends PSTN service over wireless links.
It increases the capacity of a T1 or E1 line by up to
CVS increases line capacity and saves 90 percent of
leased line cost by compressing 360 voice channels over
an E1 line and 288 over a T1 line.

Generation CG 6500C, a product from Mistral Solution's
partner NMS communications, has been launched recently.
Features: The CG 6500C platform enables deployment
of an increased number of applications within large-scale
network environments in a quick and cost effective manner.
It provides a platform for value added services like
conferencing, voice portals, prepaid calling, virtual
personal assistants, and voice-activated dialing.
It has the capacity to pack into a single-board platform
up to four times the trunk capacity and up to three
times the processing power of other platforms.
The platform offers support for scalable, high-capacity
applications requiring 120 ports or more, including
media servers supporting up to 480 ports of IVR, VoIP
gateways with up to 360 ports per slot, and IP media
servers running NMS PacketMedia.
In addition it offers integrated PSTN interfaces, telephony
protocols, comprehensive IVR functionality, full-duplex
cancellation, speech encoding, fax processing, fast
Ethernet interfaces, packet protocols, low-latency media
streaming, and full support for the PICMG hot-swap standard.

Switch and NICs with firewalls
3Com has released two switches, and a 10/100 Mbps NIC.
The new switches are SuperStack 3 Switch 4225 and 4250
and come with 24 and 48, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports
The switches are available with 3Com's Network Supervisor
software, which can be used to map IP devices attached
to the switches and to monitor traffic utilization on
Features: The switches include IEEE 802.1Q VLAN
traffic tagging capabilities along with 802.p traffic
prioritization. They have two auto-sensing 10/100/1000
Mbps ports for connecting to a network core. The ports
can be used either for network up-links or for stacking
switches in a wiring closet.
3Com has also introduced the 3CR990 family of NICs along
with an embedded firewall and the 3Com 100 Secure Fiber-FX
Network Interface Card.
Features: The embedded firewall works with the
NIC to extend the protection of the perimeter firewall,
bringing tamper resistant security to desktops and servers.
The firewall filters traffic originating from inside
the corporate LAN or across the Internet.
The NICs claim to implement end-to-end LAN security
with standards-based IPSec encryption to provide good
network performance, management intelligence, and data
Features like processing offloads and fiber-optic compatibility
help make the desktop run faster, more secure, highly
available and easier to manage.

routing at branch offices
Networks launched XSR-1800 series (X-Pedition Security
Router 1800 series), security routers for enterprise
Features: The XSR-1800 series combine a suite
of IP router features, a broad range of WAN interfaces,
site-to-site and remote access VPN, and a policy-managed
It offers non-blocking, dynamic multi-point switching
fabric and custom ASICs (Application Specific Integrated
Circuits) which deliver wire-speed switching and routing
of layer 2, layer 3, and layer 4 flows at Gigabit speeds,
on all ports, all the time.
The routers are interoperable with other standards-based
routers and switches. The XSRs use routing code from
existing X-Pedition LAN gear, VPN software from its
Aurorean line of VPN gateways, Enterasys' Dragon intrusion-detection
software, and a firewall.
The boxes have dual 10/100 Ethernet ports and can be
fitted with T1 or basic-rate-interface ISDN cards for
connecting to the Internet or a Service Provider.

has introduced a MAN platform called the ONS 15530,
which is a DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexer)
optimized for SAN applications.
According to Cisco, users usually have to dedicate a
separate wavelength for each ESCON channel because a
single ESCON channel operates at 200 Mbps. This uses
less than 2 percent of the available bandwidth in a
10 Gbps wavelength.
Features: ONS 15530 can multiplex up to 40 ESCON
(Enterprise Systems CONnection) channels over one 10
ONS 15530 supports SONET/SDH, ATM, and optical fiber.
It also supports up to thirty-two 2.5 Gbps or 10 Gbps
wavelengths on a single fiber pair.
The other DWDM features include an optical supervisory
channel used for management and performance monitoring,
and four-channel optical add/drop multiplexer modules,
which let the systems be configured in point-to-point,
ring, and mesh network topologies.

Hat India, announced the availability of Red Hat Linux
Advanced Server, the first enterprise-class Linux OS
in India. A recent TCO analysis by IDC shows that Linux
reduces per-user costs by almost half in Internet/intranet/extranet
environments when compared to RISC/UNIX solutions. In
collaborative computing these savings can exceed 75
According to the company the launch of the Advanced
Server has received support from software vendors like
Oracle and Veritas, and from hardware server platform
providers like Compaq, Dell, and IBM.
All of these technology leaders have agreed to ensure
enterprise application availability, performance optimization
and integrated technical support for the product.
Features: The Red Hat Linux Advanced Server products
claim to allow large companies to accelerate their migration
from costly, proprietary OSs to Linux running on Intel-based
