CMP Net: First Linux Router To Hit Market In 3Q

“Amid the buzz about Linux becoming a viable competitor against
Microsoft Windows, NBase-Xyplex this week introduced the first
Linux router.”

“In addition to leveraging the routing protocols in Linux, the
high-end OSR8000 router features an 18-slot chassis, a
40-gigabit-per-second switching matrix, and supports up to 26
million packet-per-second throughput. It is slated to ship in the
third quarter.”

“The $300,000 device is being targeted at service providers and
large enterprises because of its high speed and complexity, said
Simon McCormack, senior product manager at NBase-Xyplex, in
Littleton, Mass.”
