Welcome to Cisco
Cisco Systems, Inc. offers a complete family of multiprotocol, multimedia routers and ATM switches to meet a variety of network requirements. Cisco's multiple platforms offer a range of price and performance options that ensure network flexibility, configurability, and operational integrity.
The available platforms range from entry-level routers used to subnet networks to high-end routers and ATM switches. As with other product offerings, Cisco's ATM switches are designed to satisfy a broad range of application needs and traffic requirements. Thus, you can select an ATM switch that best meets the needs of your organization, as described briefly below:
•Cisco LightStream 100 ATM Switch—This device is a desktop ATM switch used to build workgroup local area networks (LANs) or a campus backbone switched internetwork. The LightStream 100 ATM switch supports up to 16 ATM lines at 155 Mbps (megabits per second).
•Cisco LightStream 1010 ATM Switch—This device is particularly suited for workgroup and campus backbone deployment. Incorporating support for the latest ATM Forum specifications and built upon Cisco Systems' Internetwork Operating System (IOS) software, the LightStream 1010 offers a complete and sophisticated feature set. Thus, it meets the functionality, performance, and scalability attributes essential to production ATM deployment.
•LightStream 2020 Multiservice ATM Switch—This device is a powerful, backbone ATM switch that can be used in both local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). The LightStream 2020 provides capabilities in both ATM and fastpacket switching applications. Thus it can handle Frame Relay traffic, circuit emulation traffic, and LAN traffic with equal facility. In addition, the LS2020 switch provides FDDI and Ethernet switching capabilities.
The LightStream 2020 multiservice ATM switch (LS2020 switch) is the subject of this document. The LS2020 switch is designed to help you build an enterprise-wide ATM network that links local and geographically dispersed LANs and WANs.
Commitment to customer requirements, development of new standards-based technologies, and insistence on quality products, services, and technical support have made Cisco Systems the leading supplier of high-performance internetworking products.

You can determine your software version level by issuing the ls -ls /usr/app command at the LynxOS bash prompt. The output of this command displays a link called `base' that points to a directory whose name contains the software version number.
Similarly, you can display your hardware configuration by issuing the sysver -a command at the LynxOS bash prompt.
