Bay has added support for Netscape's directory server in its three month old Contivity Extranet switch. The product forms part of the networking company's policy based framework.
Netscape Directory Server is the first third party directory server to be supported by Contivity. Bay is working on extending links to directory servers from Novell and Microsoft. Contivity currently uses a standards based lightweight directory access protocol database.
Bay is also working on supporting Netscape Directory Server in its Accelar Routing Switch by the end of the year, and in all its routers by the beginning of 1999, said Bay's UK director of technology, Jeff Alsford.
The inclusion of Netscape Directory Server to Contivity is part of both companies' support of the industry's Directory Enabled Networking initiative. This allows networks to be managed and configured based on user information in directory servers.
