Your Frame Relay Passport

SMALL TO MEDIUM-SIZED multisite businesses can consolidate all traffic on a single public Frame Relay facility with a new product from Nortel. The Passport 4400 Access Device Phase 3 integrates voice, fax, IP, video, and legacy traffic over a single WAN connection, saving money on duplicated carrier facilities and operations costs.

With the Passport 4400 Phase 3, the user can access all nodes in the network by setting up a single permanent virtual circuit (PVC) from his or her site to the central site switch. This allows the user to tunnel multiple end-to-end Frame Relay switched virtual circuits (SVCs) within a single PVC. A specific quality of service can be assigned to applications transported over the tunneled SVC, so multiple types ,of traffic--SNA, LAN, voice--can be supported to multiple sites over a single PVC. An advanced traffic management system ensures that mission-critical traffic always gets through, while the lowest priority traffic is guaranteed a minimum throughput.

The Passport 4400 Phase 3 features a self-learning address server, ClearVoice compression and echo cancellation technology, and a PC-based configuration tool for quick set up of commonly used multiservice features. The unit also supports flexible network link resilience through WAN backup to keep the network operational if the primary link or Frame Relay service provider's network fails.--Nortel Networks
