The overall system features fault-tolerant LAN emulation components, including redundant LANE configuration server, LANE Server, and broadcast and unknown server functions.
The XLES contains three entities which provide essential LANE services: the LES LAN Emulation Server provides MAC address to ATM address resolution; the BUS Broadcast and Unknown Server applies the broadcast and multicast capabilities of a LAN to the point-to-point connection structure of ATM, and also supplements the LES by resolving unknown MAC addresses; the LECS LAN Emulation Configuration Server tracks the various emulated LANs, identifying whether they are Ethernet or Token Ring, what their maximum frame size is, and what other defining characteristics exist.
