The Bay Bridge is a high performance bridge/router capable of bridging and routing over 100,000 packets per second between two network ports. The first prototype provides a platform for the investigation of very high speed bridging and routing in hardware. High throughput is achieved by a specialised processor: The Protocol Converter, a programmable device(More)
