IP-GATE and IP-FANOUT
The IP-FANOUT application runs on a Datakit
Applications Processor (DKAP) Module. This application
performs a distribution function where an IP-GATE
located at a remote site is connected to the DKAP via a
virtual circuit on the WAN. IP PDUs that emanate from a
single IP-GATE at a central home site are sent by the IP-
FANOUT application to only the intended remote sites.
Because of the IP-GATE unit's ability to make intelligent
routing decisions, the IP PDUs are not broadcast
throughout the entire WAN.At the remote site, IP-GATE
unit(s) connected off of a SAM, MPC or Node pass native
IP traffic to the local IP network.
The compact IP-GATE is available in both stand-alone
and rack-mount versions to fit your space and
configuration requirements.The IP-GATE is available as
either a 115V/220V AC or 48V DC powered unit.
Smart Network Management
You can manage an IP-GATE via its Console port with a
terminal, PC, dial-up modem, or BNS asynchronous
connection. Network administrators can access the IP-
GATE console port via the StarKeeper® II NMS for
configuration and alarm management as well.
Field Software Upgrades
Field software updates, which can occur from a remote
location, complete in just a few minutes.
The IP-GATE is an intelligent gateway for the transport
of IP over existing WANs. It will transport existing IP
LAN traffic over a secure WAN. It can be used with
SAMs, MPCs and Nodes and, when used with IP-
FANOUT, the IP-GATE can be used for widely
distributed IP-based networks.
