Product of the Day: Real World Linux Product Spotlight - Imagestream's TransPort Router
Imagestream's TransPort Router is a great alternative to Cisco for the Linux community.
The new TransPort(TM) router has quickly become ImageStream's best selling router. With its small footprint, business-class features, and competitive price, the TransPort is an ideal router for low-density T1 and E1 applications that require wire-speed performance.
The TransPort includes a high-performance VIA C3 processor, 128 MB memory, three 10/100 ethernet ports, and one expansion slot for network adapters. It can be bundled with single or dual port adapters for synchronous serial or T1/E1 applications. The TransPort's expansion slot also supports add-on interfaces for ethernet, basic rate ISDN (BRI), ADSL, or 56 K dial-up applications.
The TransPort features ImageStream's Enterprise Linux(TM) router software distribution, which supports most WAN protocols, and advanced features including NAT firewall, packet filtering, bridging, bandwidth limiting, QoS, dynamic routing, VPN, and more. Like all ImageStream routers, the TransPort includes 12 months of free 24/7 technical support, a full 12-month warranty on parts and labor, free software upgrades for life, and the industry's only 31-day money back performance guarantee.
The TransPort is ImageStream's entry-level Industrial Series router for branch offices and other small-scale premise routing applications. It offers wire-speed performance and unwavering reliability in a small but durable steel chassis. The TransPort can replace Cisco 1600, 1700 and 2600 series routers, and it offers a low-cost solution for virtual private network (VPN) and quality of service (QoS) applications where wire-speed performance is mandatory.
ImageStream was founded in 1995 with the mission of producing best-of-class routers, monitoring taps, and OEM networking solutions. ImageStream uses Linux and commodity hardware to produce some of the world's lowest cost high-performance routers. In addition to the new TransPort router, ImageStream manufactures the industry's lowest cost OC12, OC3, DS3/E3 and high-density T1/E1 routers. For example, ImageStream's Rebel is the industry's lowest cost DS3/E3 router with a retail price of less than $4,500 with one DS3/E3 port, and ImageStream's Gateway is the industry's lowest cost OC3/STM1 router with a retail price of less than $6,600 including one multimode OC3 port.
ImageStream routers are used in every industry, including banking, medical, and legal; aerospace, education, and military; Internet access providers, Web hosting providers, and telecommunications carriers. ImageStream routers are deployed in over 75 countries around the world, and have been recognized as best-of-class performers in independent lab tests.
