Matrix E7 Intelligent Access Platform to Power
QoS Demonstrations at Network Computing "Real-World" Labs
LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2000
Enterasys Networks, a leader in high-performance enterprise switching solutions, today announced that its newly introduced Matrix E7 intelligent access platform will power "real-world" demonstrations of Quality-of-Service (QoS) at Networld+Interop, Las Vegas. Enterasys will display its real-time QoS and traffic management capabilities on a fully-loaded network deploying it's SmartVoice Gateway (SVG) Voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology and application server computing technology from Citrix Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS). The presentations will verify the powerful traffic control capabilities of Enterasys' switching solutions, allowing users to accelerate the deployment of time-sensitive applications such as voice and video and overall, enhance the performance of business-critical solutions.
The demonstrations will take place at the Network Computing "Real-World" labs during the Networld+Interop exhibition in Las Vegas, May 9-11, 2000.
Enterasys Networks has designed and built a working enterprise network to demonstrate the QoS capabilities of its newly introduced Matrix E7 high-performance intelligent access platform and its award-winning SmartSwitch 2000 switching solution. Attached to the network will be a number of SVGs, Enterasys' Voice/Fax-over-IP switch, capable of transmitting voice traffic in enterprise IP environments.
"VoIP demonstrations usually take place on networks with little or no other traffic present," said John Pappas, senior program manager for technical marketing at Enterasys Networks. "These environments are not real-world situations as corporate networks are usually heavily loaded with a mix of application traffic. The Matrix E7 and SmartSwitch products will be used to show our ability to assign bandwidth and QoS to voice traffic in order to audibly demonstrate the power of our solutions. The voice traffic will be passed through several switches, simulating typical wiring closet and data center infrastructures that co-exist in most corporate networks."
Enterasys Networks will also demonstrate its support for Citrix application serving technology by leveraging high-speed QoS and traffic management features inherent within its Matrix E7 and SmartSwitch platforms.
"Our customers live in the real-world and have networks that cope with many different traffic types and load situations," said John Roese, chief technology officer at Enterasys Networks. "Enterasys designs its products to help customers deliver new applications to their users. Through this unique display at Networld+Interop, Enterasys will demonstrate its inherent, end-to-end QoS and traffic management capabilities that when utilized, can bring organizations a competitive edge in their IT implementation plans."
