Intel has fleshed out its networking products portfolio for small and medium sized businesses with technologies inherited from companies purchased during its two year acquisition spree.
The chip giant has added the Intel 6000 Series Switch for small companies to its line up, and the Intel Express 9500 and 8200 routers for linking branch offices, regional and central sites together.
The Gigabit Ethernet 6000 Series Switch was designed by Dayna, a networking equipment company that Intel purchased in 1997. It aggregates local area network (Lan) based workgroups and servers and provides 32 Gigabit Ethernet or 96 Fast Ethernet ports in a five slot 10.5 inch chassis.
The offering will ship on 28 September, but Eric Fullerton, joint general manager of Intel's network systems division, said the company also planned to add "intelligence" to the switches by integrating technologies from Intel's 1999 acquisition of Gigabit Ethernet specialist, XLNT.
The aim is to help combat bottlenecks by enabling the switches to analyse and forward data packets based on content and the first fruits of the project are slated for some time next year.
The Intel Express 9500 and 8200 routers will be available immediately and support a range of wide area network (Wan) protocols. They will provide hardware based compression at speeds up to 2Mbps on Wan ports and will be targetted at regional Internet Service Providers and businesses running between 500 and 1,000 nodes.
