LAN switch boasts rate-limiting

MiLAN Technology this week at Comdex Canada in Toronto announced the MIL-S3580, a 24-port Layer 2 switch that can limit traffic rates on a per-port basis. Traffic on the MIL-S3580’s 24 ports of 10/100Mbps Ethernet can be set to eight different “levels” or speeds between 10Mbps and 100Mbps per connection. Traffic on virtual LAN (VLAN) segments on the ports can also be rate-limited based on the eight levels. Traffic speeds through ports and VLANs can be adjusted separately for ingress and egress network traffic. In addition to the Fast Ethernet ports, the switch also has two Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) slots for inserting 1000Base-T, -SX or -LX uplinks, or Fast Ethernet GBIC uplinks. The box supports management tools such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Remote Monitoring (RMON) and port mirroring.
