D-Link CPE Supports Longhorn's Link Layer Topology Discovery

D-link is demonstrating two client devices, including a Wi-Fi security camera and a network storage adapter, supporting the upcoming Microsoft "Longhorn" Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) protocol. To ease the installation and configuration of home networks, "Longhorn" will use LLTD to detect devices on the network, determine how they are interconnected and represent the network in a graphic form. D-Link said this ability to visualize home networks will help users identify connectivity issues needing corrective action. The company is continuing to develop support for LLTD in a wide rage of existing and upcoming consumer networking devices, including wireless routers, wireless media adapters, wireless security cameras, etc.
