The ACEswitch 110 has (8) 10/100 and (2) GbE ports available on it.
Obviously you do not need Alteon NIC technology if you want to connect your
Squid servers (or other caching systems) to our switch using Ethernet or
Fast Ethernet. It is both a Layer-2 switch and a Layer-4 switch
simultaneously, allowing users to scale their cache farms to appropriate
sizes, or use Server Load Balancing simultaneously, plus allowing other
normal L2 switching functions.
