FRS Now Has Cut-through

New version of Flexibilis Redundant Switch (FRS) has been released this week. The most significant improvement is that the switch now has cut-through functionality, in addition to store-and-forward. You can freely choose between these two, whichever suits your system better.

Cut-through is a packet forwarding method in which the switch starts to forward the packet before it is fully received. This lowers latency in a non-congested network. With store-and-forward the packet is fully received before it is forwarded, and it is more reliable especially if there are high error rates.
