Designed to meet the needs of both connection-oriented and connectionless packet-switched networks, the new iNAV® 9200 series is by far the industry's most advanced, price/performance-maximized solution for multiprotocol interworking applications. The iNAV® 9200 solution yields multimillion packet processing per second, enabling a five fold improvement in price/performance ratio over alternative gateway solutions for access networks.
Functioning as a gateway-in-a-box solution, the new iNAV® 9200 incorporates an internal network processor core based on the powerful Wintegra™ WinPath™ processor, housed in a 1RU enclosure The iNAV® 9200 The iNAV 9200 provides ATM to Ethernet interworking using DS-3/E3, OC-3/STM-1, OC-12/STM-4, and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. By providing technology-bridging functionality with pre-developed protocols, the iNAV® 9200 offers system-level functions all in a compact housing, delivering drastically reduced development time, system footprint, and manpower. Specifically in ATM-based networks, the architecture of the iNAV® 9200 achieves unparalleled levels of performance in ATM Adaptation Layer 5 (AAL5) and Ethernet protocol processing to provide a seamless bridge between ATM and Ethernet networks.
The iNAV® 9200 supports IGMP and MPEG over ATM conversion to IP/UDP unicast of multicast flows which makes the iNAV® 9200 ideal for IPTV applications.
