- FPS-8 is a fast multiprotocol packet switch,
intended for the regional/central office environment. Each of its eight
ports can be configured for any of the supported protocols and operate at
data rates of up to 2 Mbps.
- Typical applications include: Frame Relay
concentration and Frame Relay switching at high throughput.
The FPS-8 is a high performance Frame Relay/X.25
switch suitable for headquarters and central sites requiring high
throughput. Each port can be configured to one of several protocols: Frame
Relay, X.25, RIP, RIP-2, PPP, MLPPP, HDLC, SLIP or async.
The FPS-8 can perform packet switching between different applications such
as X.25 to X.25; X.25 to Frame Relay; Frame Relay to Frame Relay; and SLIP
to SLIP. It can also encapsulate various protocols over Frame Relay and
The FPS-8 can also offer a unique solution for
transmitting legacy data over high speed IP networks by encapsulating the
data into IP packets.
The built-in management agent enables configuration, compilation of
statistics and status reports, and diagnostics. The management agent can be
accessed from any location in the network. It can be programmed to transmit
this information as a result of an alarm event.
The SNMP agent enables management by the
RADview graphical user interface on a PC or HP OpenView UNIX station,
allowing the products to be configured and controlled via the X.25/Frame
Relay network. It sends traps to the management station and supports
Link interfaces are modular and can be ordered for RS-232/V.24, V.35,
RS-530, X.21, V.36 or Ethernet. Each interface is switch-selectable for DCE
or DTE. Both the protocol and the interface can be independently selected on
