NicheStack Gateway components are optimized for use in conjunction with NicheStack Dual and IPv4 device networking packages, greatly simplifying development and configuration network equipment.
NicheStack RIP is an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) module engineered for efficient traffic management in networked devices. RIP enables traffic forwarding and dynamic sharing of IP gateways and route information. RIP includes a number of advanced techniques to prevent routing loops and host update failures including triggered updates, split horizon and split horizon with poisoned reverse.
NicheStack NATRouter can be used to create a private IP address space for traffic on one side of a gateway or router device, easing security issues and reducing requirements on the IP address space in a network. Up to 64k local addresses can "masquerade" behind the NATRouter function, with extensible ALG support to ensure functional transparency for application operation.
The NicheStack DHCP Server is the standards-based method of providing local IP addresses and network information to devices on a TCP/IP based network. The DHCP Server is a complete device optimized implementation of this important network configuration protocol with a capability to assign dynamic (variable lease-time) or static address information to subscribing client devices. DHCP is compatible with Microsoft Windows clients and is backward compatible with older BOOTP requests. Configuration and addresses assignment storage can be supported via a database on a virtual disk or in flash memory.
InterNiche is the specialist in royalty-free embedded TCP/IP protocols optimized for maximum performance and minimum memory footprint and are provided as source code. NicheStack IPv4 and IPv6 products are engineered for smooth integration and low run-time overhead to address the challenges faced by embedded system development teams in adding networking, security and management to low cost devices.
