Bay Networks is hoping to shake up the software and application vendors with the launch of phase two of its Adaptive Networking strategy this week.
The company is launching IP Services, the second cornerstone in the strategy announced last April. The previous announcement involved switching, while upcoming developments will cover remote access and network management.
"What we are launching is key to software companies," said Graeme Allan, UK managing director at Bay. "This is about turbo-charging the applications that need to run on IP. We're throwing down the gauntlet to the software industry. Since the advent of networking software, businesses have tended to belittle the infrastructure part of the network as just plumbing. IP Services is the foundation for subtly but fundamentally changing the way that software companies use the network."
Two products have been announced under the banner so far, including a new version of Bay RS, (the company's routing software) and VPN500. Others will be introduced over the next three to six months which will improve directory handling, traffic management and virtual circuits, according to Allan.
