HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the OpenWare V6.3 network-management software for the company's NETernity layer 2/3 Ethernet switches for mission-critical applications that demand security, speed, bandwidth, flexibility, and reliability.
OpenWare V6.3 adds enhancements such as Port Wizard for reconfigurable port types; support for 10GBASE-KX4 by V6.3; display of the serial number of the switch by the OpenWare console; security common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE) patches; password-controlled access at all levels; and very fast start-up.
Installable as a plug-and-play switch environment, OpenWare software enables users to implement management, network, and protocol features progressively.
OpenWare was developed in house by Abaco's Networking Innovation Center. Its multi-level military-grade security balances between protecting data and preventing unauthorized access on the one hand and accessibility and usability on the other.
The OpenWare embedded computing software's GNU/Linux-based architecture blends open-source network switching and routing with Abaco's network management. It is based on industry standard layer 2/3 network protocols, management, and security technology, making OpenWare-based switches compatible with existing network infrastructures.
