Trapeze Moves To Distributed Switching Model

Trapeze Networks Inc. unveiled its “Smart Mobile” software, which conveys copies of Station Switching Records to each access point in an 802.11 network. The new solution renders local copies of information on Quality of Service policies, firewall protection, and Virtual LAN tags. It enables encryption to be carried out in a distributed manner and it can better handle the gigabit per second speeds expected in 802.11n networks. Trapeze chief technology officer Dan Simone believes the software can make higher-layer links in external wireless LAN environments, which resemble the Layer 3 and 4 wireless backhaul systems offered by microwave radio companies.
