For Sun[TM] GigabitEthernet, SunFastEthernet[TM] and Sun Quad FastEthernet[TM] Adapters

Sun Trunking[TM] 1.3 link aggregation software is currently available
with support for the Solaris[TM] Operating Systems (Solaris OS) 7, 8 and
9 on Sun[TM] GigabitEthernet, SunFastEthernet[TM] and Sun Quad
FastEthernet[TM] adapters. Sun Trunking 1.3 software allows customers to
aggregate up to four Sun GigabitEthernet ports or up to sixteen 10/100
Sun FastEthernet ports into a single virtual link (trunk).

Sun Trunking 1.3 enables aggregation of multiple Gigabit Ethernet, Quad
FastEthernet or FastEthernet links into one single virtual link for
higher performance and resiliency. The software adds to the
functionality included in Sun Trunking 1.2.1 by adding support to the:

- Sun Gigabit Ethernet Network Interface Card (Part # X1150A): For
high performance Category 5 UTP and PCI applications with full IEEE
802.3 compliance

- Sun Gigabit Ethernet Network Interface Card (Part # X1151A): For
high performance MMF fiber and PCI applications with full IEEE
802.3 compliance

- Sun Dual FastEthernet and SCSI Network Interface Card

The new software is designed for customers who need to add bandwidth and
high availability to systems using Sun GigabitEthernet or Sun Quad Fast
Ethernet hardware adapters on a single, logical port on the existing
cable. The software operates between two Sun servers or between a Sun
server and a trunking-capable switch.
