  • Albuquerque, NM (May 24, 2005) ─ Today, SBS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SBSE), a leading designer and manufacturer of communication solutions, is continuing its role as an embedded computer industry market leader by introducing the newest members of its WANic 1000 line–the high-performance WANic 1001-DEM DS3/E3 ATM network monitoring adapter. The WANic 1001-DEM adapter can easily monitor a full duplex DS3/E3 ATM Wide Area Network (WAN). The WANic 1001-DEM effortlessly connects to a WAN using a standard DS3/E3 Monitor Tap and a DB-15 cable, both of which are included in the WANic 1001-DEM kit. "The WANic 1001-DEM is designed to perform such essential DS3 network monitoring requirements as network security, line rate monitoring and network testing in a cost-effective manner," said Rubin Dhillon, General Manager of the SBS Technologies Communications design center in Massachusetts. "This DS3/E3 ATM WAN adapter brings a high degree of flexibility and reliability to a network manager's network maintenance responsibilities." This PCI-X-based adapter comes with a passive Tap system that occupies only one slot. The WANic 1001-DEM contains a bypass circuit that lets network managers easily monitor DS3/E3 ATM network connections as a passive device. With its Auto Discovery and indexing functions, the WANic 1001-DEM adapter can automatically detect new Far-End Group Identifiers and provision a corresponding local VPI/VCI identifier prior to forwarding the ATM cells to the ATM segmentation and reassembly (SAR) device on the WANic 1001-DEM. This Auto Discovery function significantly improves the quality of the monitoring information available to a network manager. Price and Availability: Available now, the WANic 1001-DEM in OEM quantities lists for US$1,884. # # # About SBS Technologies SBS Technologies® (Nasdaq:SBSE), founded in 1986, designs and builds a wide range of standard and customized embedded computer products.
