Digital has introduced an IP packet switching solution for its Gigaswitch system and claimed the price will undercut Cisco and reduce costs for big business.
Lee Knoch, product marketing manager at Digital Networks, said: ?The introduction means corporate customers can start to implement high speed networks. This is a cheaper implementation than Cisco. Big corporations want more bandwidth and at present they have to pay for it. We?re offering a much better price.?
He claimed that the price of the Digital solution offered as much as 20 times the performance of routers within an organisation for less than five times the cost. A typically configured Gigaswitch system costs $24,000 while the equivalent Cisco solution cost $75,000, he claimed.
The release of the Digital system leverages the company?s position as the primary provider of FDDI networks, he claimed. ?The Gigaswitch carries most of the packets transferred today on the World Wide Web as well as a high percentage of the packets transferred within enterprise networks,? he said.
At the same time, Digital announced additional product lines in its ISDN family. The products are the Route About Access ISDN family of routers, DRS software and the Route About Central EI router.
