Samsung is boosting its networking portfolio with an OEM deal with Xylan. The company will badge Xylan's switching range and will license and modify its Omnivision network management software to control Samsung ATM switches.
The deal commits Samsung to buy $500,000 worth of Xylan Lan switches within 90 days and a total of $10 million worth of products from the company in 1997. The Korean company will combine its own ATM switching technology with its new partner's Lan devices and the Omnivision software to provide a single, Samsung-badged package for network customers.
The main Xylan products involved are Omniswitch and Pizzaswitch, which link combinations of 10/100Mbps Ethernet, Token Ring, FDDI, CDDI, ATM and frame relay at wire speed. They switch using IP and IPX protocols.
