The AVI LPC 8942 LANpipe Controller is a component of the overall LANpipe solution, providing the capability to manage and deliver Layer 2 traffic over Layer 3 networks from multiple data sources; seamlessly roaming between multiple mobile radio and physical networks based on the measurement of link quality metrics.
The AVI LPC 8942 is an open hardware platform hosting the AVI Operating System (AVIOS) and application software (LANpipe) in order to support AVI User Equipment (UE) based wireless networks.
AVI LANpipe software allows individual AVI UEs to communicate between each other and the production network as if they are all physically connected on a simple Layer 2 network, thus effectively and efficiently managing data from multiple endpoints. LANpipe provides transparent traversal of Internet Protocol (IP)/Ethernet sourced Broadcast, Multicast and Unknown-destination unicast traffic over any transport network, including LTE.
The high performance AVI Operating System (AVIOS) Software delivers routing IOS into an extremely mobile communications system. The AVI LPC 8942 provides highly secure yet scalable data, voice, and video communications capability to stationary and mobile network nodes across Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks.
Remote configuration of AVIOS and LANpipe facilitates the management of high availability and fault rectification. Using an industrial type aluminium enclosure and high grade components with a high operating temperature range, the AVI LPC 8942 is optimised for operation in ‘server room’ environments that require reliable and secure routing, switching and AVI LANpipe technology.
