Sun reveals version of Trunking software

Sun Microsystems intends to make the "fat pipe fatter" with the latest release of its Sun Trunking 1.2 software. The product bundles multiple network ports to create high-bandwidth network connections in existing Ethernet networks.

It allows for the aggregation of two Gigabit Ethernet ports and increases throughput in Fast Ethernet networks.

The technology helps alleviate network bandwidth constraints, especially in data warehousing, data mining, database backup, and digital media creation are used, according to Sun.
