Phase 1 Conformance Executable Test Suite Solution consists of Bellcore developed test suites which is intended to allow ATM device manufacturers and service providers to validate PNNI
implementations according to the ATM Forum Specification.
simply adds information to PNNI
linkstate update messages that allows the perimeter devices to maintain awareness of LAN protocols and layer-3 subnetwork topologies.
NEC America's ATM switches 1) Accomplished peer group leader status for configuration of the PNNI
multi-level hierarchical ATM network and 2)Successfully completed the function necessary for exchanging information needed for control of dynamic routing between peer groups.
interEMULATOR strengths lie in its ability to conduct real-time testing and analysis of complex network topologies.
We are excited to be the first vendor to independently demonstrate ATM Forum PNNI
compliance," said Joseph Skorupa, senior director, product marketing, FORE Systems.
and independent routing operations in their switches adds further value.
is a hierarchical, dynamic link-state routing protocol.
GN Nettest's current PNNI
offering, which is available on the interWATCH(TM); enables service providers and network equipment vendors to perform conformance and interoperability testing.
It provides effective testing of PNNI
implementations as well as quality assurance and final testing in a cost efficient manner.
DCL's Fault Tolerance Manager (DC-FTM), first released in January 1998, replicates ATM signalling and routing databases to a back-up processor to support hot-swap on hardware failure and hot-software upgrades, while maintaining all active calls and parties and maintaining an up-to-date PNNI
Coupled with RADCOM's PNNI
simulation package announced in October and its award-winning UNI signalling simulation software, these solutions are the only integrated source of ATM PNNI
and UNI conformance and simulation testing available on the market today.
It contains a call admission control capability and is integrated with Soft-ATM(TM) PNNI
Routing Software Subsystem.
