Quick Eagle 5844 Multiport Ethernet Bridge

The Quick Eagle 5844 Multiport Ethernet Bridge is ideal for medium-sized businesses, and their branch offices, which need a MAC leaning bridge (IEE 802.1d) that can extend the office LAN over the WAN.

With its four-port density, the 5844 Multiport Ethernet Bridge delivers all the functions you need in this type of network application: the ability to have geographically dispersed groups work seamlessly together over a VLAN or private enterprise network. Along with IP, legacy LAN layer 3 traffic such as SNA®, DecNet® and IPX can transparently pass through the 5844 Multiport Ethernet Bridge.

The embedded network performance monitoring features (RMON-1, and Ethernet port statistics) along with Frame Relay Service Level Verification (based on FRF.13) provide additional layers of diagnostic tools for both the WAN and LAN connections.

The 5844 Multiport Ethernet Bridge enables you to take advantage of the emerging virtual LAN services offered by a number of carriers and service providers that are migrating to an MPLS backbone, but use PPP or FR at the Provider Edge (PE).

Multilink PPP (RFC1990) or Multilink Frame Relay (FRF.16.1) protocols provide the 5844 Multiport Ethernet Bridge with the capability to bond multiple T1/E1s into a single high-speed virtual link to provide added bandwidth, up to 8 Mbps. This technique is perfectly suitable for transmitting broadcast quality real-time MPEG video streams in either a unicast (point-to-point) or multicast (point-to-multi-point) network.

An optional bandwidth management feature brings simple and rudimentary bandwidth management to the bridged network. It enables traffic classification by IP source and IP destination addresses, ports and protocols, VLAN IDs/VLAN priorities, MAC addresses, and Ethernet type. In addition, it enables traffic monitoring.
