"ImageStream Internet Solutions is now shipping eight new DS3 and E3 WAN cards for Linux. The cards are available for the PCI and CompactPCI buses in DS3 and E3 flavors with one or two ports and integrated full-speed CSU/DSUs."

"ImageStream's President, J.C. Utter, says he expects the new WAN cards to become best-selling products. Utter says, "With the release of the 850 series, ImageStream has established itself as the price-performance leader in DS3 and E3 WAN cards for Linux." The new WAN cards can be installed in most Linux-based systems, and they are compatible with ImageStream's Industrial and Pro series routers."

"The new cards utilize ImageStream's WAN component architecture for Linux called SAND. SAND provides modular support for many popular WAN protocols including PPP, Cisco HDLC, frame relay, X.25, as well as raw IP and ASCII components for developers. In addition, SAND provides support for real-time port status and performance monitoring. ImageStream released the source code to SAND in April."
