-The FVC accessNGI (NextGenerationInternet) atm switch is manufactured by First Virtual Communications ([[www.fvc.com|www.fvc.com]]). It is intended as an access level switch and interfaces with 2mb/s leased lines, 25MB/s workstations and 155MB/s servers. It supports both SVC's and PVC's. The basic switch has an ethernet port on the control module next to the RJ45 console connection. This is not the same pinout as Cisco use. The ethernet port interfaces to the atm network using Lan Emulation. An alternative module can supply 6 ethernet ports. The built in ethernet port uses LAN Emulation to bridge to atm, but seems unable to terminate an rfc1483 pvc. We used to use them an access switches on the end of a 2MB/s G703 leased line, the ethernet port linked in to an ethernet switch, and the 25MB/s ports is used for a few pc's which need to connect to different networks. For many pc's on different networks the vether module is used to connect to a supplementary ethernet switch. The atm wan and backbone keeps the different network traffic seperate.

 The initial config of the switch is useless for our application,​ so the easiest thing is to delete it straight away. Unfortunately,​ unlike Cisco IOS there is no command line repeat, but the later firmware images have command completion and help at any point by typing a "?"​. The initial config of the switch is useless for our application,​ so the easiest thing is to delete it straight away.
