3Com unveiled Transcend Network Control Services Version 1.1 for Windows NT, a suite of policy-based management applications for the company's systems.
Functioning with both cell- and packet-based networks, the Web-based system can configure and manage multidomain virtual LANs (VLANs) based on the LAN Emulation (LANE) and 802.1Q standards, according to 3Com.
Logical constructs are overlaid onto a physical network topology map to simplify management of VLAN policies and backbone utilization across an enterprise network.
Automatic configuration tools and LAN security policy enforcement capabilities also are included.
Secure mobile connectivity is ensured with the package. Additionally, the product can be wireless-enabled through support of 3Com's AirConnect Wireless LAN offerings.
The package runs over Hewlett-Packard's OpenView Network Node Manager 6.0, or it will work in a stand-alone mode.
Available immediately, Transcend Network Control Services Version 1.1 for Windows NT is priced at US$9,995.
