Intelligent Switching Solution
Intelligent Switching Solution (ISS) is a comprehensive, feature-rich software product for developing a wide range of Intelligent Ethernet switching applications - from entry level, fixed-port fast Ethernet switches to module-based Gigabit stackable switches; and Metro Ethernet-based carrier-class systems to Data Center as well as Industrial switching solutions. A field proven software product, ISS has become an integral component of over 100 commercial products developed by leading telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs). Offering Layer 2/3/4 switching functionality at line rate, ISS drives up to 80% cost savings and up to 85% time-to-market reduction compared to ground- up development.
Our Intelligent Switch Solution (ISS) is a comprehensive software framework providing Layer 2 switching, IP v4/v6 routing, QoS, security and management capabilities.
Includes features for providing the bridging functionality, Link Aggregation, GVRP/GMRP, IGMP Snooping, Network Access Control, Rapid Spanning Tree and Multiple Spanning Tree across both IPv4 and IPv6 stacks.
In addition to ISS Workgroup features, includes several Layer 3 features such as wire speed routing, differentiated services, multicast routing, and routing for IPv6.
Advanced Ethernet switching capabilities for provider bridging, Ethernet OAM, virtual switch contexts, high availability for Layer 2 features, and MPLS/VPLS for the deployment of Ethernet in carrier or service provider networks.
In addition to ISS Enterprise features, includes Datacenter Bridging Extensions (DCBX), Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL), extensions for LLDP, Priority Flow Control (PFC), priority groups and End-to-End Congestion notification.
