Dune Networks and Bay Microsystems Partner on 20G & 40G System Designs

Dune Networks and Bay Microsystems announced a joint design for Carrier Ethernet applications. The design incorporates Dune Network's SAND Traffic Manager and Switch Fabric Chipset and Bay Microsystems's Chesapeake Network Processor and Traffic Manager. The companies are offering design documentation that provides detailed information regarding the integration of the critical technologies into a variety of Ethernet and multiservice line card applications.

Dune's switch fabric, and Bay's network processing functionality are highly complementary and the traffic management capabilities offered by the respective solutions together solve critical Quality of Service (QoS) problems: Dune's SAND Traffic Manager optimizes for traffic profiles across the switch fabric, while Chesapeake's integrated traffic manager optimizes for customer facing traffic on the line card.

"Those building, marketing and deploying Carrier Ethernet and multiservice platforms can now achieve a faster time to market while offering the most advanced Network Processing, Switch Fabric and Traffic Management solutions up to 40G and beyond," said Charles Gershman, Bay's President & CEO.
