Lucent Technologies switch can handle Layer 2, 3 and 4 routing

The P880 routing switch, a high-density addition to Lucent Technologies Inc.'s Cajun Campus LAN switches, can make the transition from Layer 2 switching to Layer 3 and 4 routing. Upgrading requires the addition of the Murray Hill, N.J., company's current 50-series Ethernet, Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet switching modules or the upcoming 80-series modules, which are set for midyear release.

The 17-slot P880 chassis can mix and match 10/100/1,000-Mbps Ethernet user ports and uplink ports from the wiring closet to the backbone. Backplane capacity scales from 56 Gbps to 139 Gbps, depending on the mix of modules.

The chassis accepts up to 768 Ethernet, 384 Fast Ethernet or 128 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Lucent's CajunView Suite software provides management.

The $24,950 P880 routing switch includes chassis, switching fabric, controller, supervisor module and power supply. Existing 50-series modules are priced from $3,995 to $13,950.
