Intel Adds Bandwidth Management To Netstructure

Intel Adds Bandwidth Management To Intel® Netstructure™ Family

New Products Monitor and Enforce Application Service Levels to Improve Quality of Service for e-Business Data Centers

AUCKLAND, August 4, 2000 – Intel New Zealand today announced two network devices that act as “traffic cops” to allocate network bandwidth and provide higher performance for e-Businesses’ most important customers, applications and services. The new Intel® NetStructure™ 7340 Traffic Shaper and 7370 Application Shaper are based on PacketWise* technology from Packeteer, a pioneer in bandwidth management.

“Bandwidth management is an important addition to the e-Business data center, allowing network managers to prioritise service for their most important customers,” said Scott Gilmour, General Manager, Intel New Zealand. “As with the other products and services that make up the Intel NetStructure family, these new systems add intelligence into the network in order to deliver a faster and better e-Commerce customer experience.”

The new Intel NetStructure bandwidth management products give Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Application Service Providers (ASPs), Hosting Service Providers (HSPs), and self-hosted e-Businesses added control over how bandwidth is used so that important applications do not lose network resources to non-critical traffic. By monitoring and controlling network bandwidth usage, these products can improve network performance and enable more efficient use of a business’ connection to the Internet, eliminating the need for some customers to purchase additional bandwidth from their ISPs.

Intel® NetStructure™ 7340 Traffic Shaper
The Intel NetStructure 7340 Traffic Shaper is a high-capacity, intelligent network appliance designed to manage network bandwidth, deliver differentiated services and control WAN bandwidth allocation. The 7340 traffic shaper allows service providers to prioritise bandwidth to improve service for business-critical applications and limit non-critical or high-capacity ones, facilitating higher performance across a range of applications and services.

The Intel NetStructure 7340 Traffic Shaper detects and classifies over 200 types of network traffic, analyses the behaviour and provides network reports. Extensive reporting capabilities allow network administrators to base capacity planning on concrete numbers and assess the impact of configuration changes. The Intel NetStructure 7340 Traffic Shaper also maintains reports on network traffic, allowing administrators to recommend additional services to clients.

Intel® NetStructure™ 7370 Application Shaper
The Intel NetStructure 7370 Application Shaper is a policy-based application subscriber management system that enables ASPs and HSPs to quickly and cost-effectively deliver secure, measured and performance-assured application services tailored to the needs of specific markets and customers.

The 7370 application shaper enables service providers to provision, monitor, measure, and control subscriber quality of experience for each application service. It provides a point of demarcation between the subscriber and the service provider; defines, enforces, and validates application network service-level agreements; controls performance; and integrates billing.

The 7370 application shaper works with network services such as frame relay, ATM, and VPN, and imposes no changes on routers, servers, desktops, or existing tools. A Web-based user interface provides access to the 7370 application shaper via a password and Web browser.

Pricing and Availability
The Intel NetStructure 7340 Traffic Shaper and 7370 Application Shaper are generally released and available for purchase at the suggested list price of US$24,995 and US$29,995, respectively.

Intel, the world’s largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.com/pressroom.
