Fore broadens its network appeal

Fore broadens its network appeal

FORE Systems throughout the rest of this year will continue its transformation into a switch hitter.

Make no mistake - FORE is not giving up its core strength in enterprise ATM. But the company is broadening its scope by developing more non-ATM technology and making its products appeal to enterprises and service providers.

As part of the transformation, FORE by mid-year will phase out some of its older product lines, according to CEO Thomas Gill.

Gill says FORE will unveil a 20Gbps switch with Ethernet blades, a product based on frame/cell switching technology code-named Hydra. At the same time, FORE isn't letting go of ATM. The company at the end of March will ship the ASX-1200, an ATM switch that serves as the follow-up to FORE's ASX-1000. The ASX-1200 can set up 4000 calls per second, 25 per cent more than the ASX-1000.
