The StarPath 5000's bulk traffic-shaping capabilities include cell delay with a buffer capacity of up to 32,000 cells and early packet discard, in which cells that must be dropped are all selected from the same packets.
Providing further efficiency, the StarPath 5000 supports large buffers, multiple quality of services, and early packet discard for more efficient traffic management.
The Cascade Flow Control Processors ensure service quality and fair throughput for all user connections by means of three mechanisms: -- Rate-Based Flow Control -- Per Virtual Circuit Queuing -- Early Packet Discard Rate-Based Flow Control automatically determines if traffic volumes are too high and therefore are causing congestion.
The LoopRunner ATM architecture supports early packet discard, four priority levels per port queue and cell rate policing with AAL5 packet policing support allows for gracefully dealing with traffic congestion.
On Display at Networld + Interop Las Vegas Interphase will be demonstrating the new 5575 on Ultra AX systems, in conjunction with its ATM Traffic Management comparison of ABR-based performance versus the performance of UBR with early packet discard.
All data is checked for errors and early packet discard is employed to maximize the efficiency of the ATM backbone network.
Deep buffers, per virtual circuit traffic shaping, early packet discard and bandwidth optimization features help service providers meet required qualities of service and provide the highest level of reliability for multiple services.
