That's right. HyNEX has done it again. Never resting on its laurels, this ATM innovator has perfected its much appreciated traffic shaping Using methods to keep traffic flowing smoothly in a network. Although the term is often used synonymously with "traffic engineering," traffic shaping deals with managing the network moment to moment, whereas traffic engineering refers to the overall strategies employed in a network. feature.
For readers unfamiliar with the HyNEX HUNT-7100, one of its major features is traffic shaping. This assures SLA (1) (StereoLithography Apparatus) See 3D printing.
(2) (Service Level Agreement) A contract between the provider and the user that specifies the level of service expected during its term. compliance by adapting a customer's traffic to agreed-upon SLA parameters before transmission. With this feature, no cells are dropped and better service is provided to users as each application is assigned the appropriate transmission characteristic. Service providers enjoy substantial cost savings because the feature shapes bursts into average rate transmission and smoothes the traffic entering the public ATM network - thus increasing availability and utilization while protecting service providers from network congestion In data networking and queueing theory, network congestion occurs when a link or node is carrying so much data that its quality of service deteriorates. Typical effects include queueing delay, packet loss or the blocking of new connections. .
The new feature is exclusive to HyNEX. This is the only hierarchical shaping currently available. It not only assures SLA compliance, but enables the shaping of a group of Virtual Channel Connections including a whole Virtual Path Connection - prior to forwarding it to the Network, and, at the same time, enables internal priorities to be set within the group.
The feature is immediately available.
