Adding to its skills in SNA networking software, Apple Computer Inc has acquired privately-held Orion Network Systems Inc, Berkeley, California on undisclosed terms, and plans to run the 31 employee company as a subsidiary from its present base. Orion worked closely with Apple’s software engineering group on the MacAPPC product launched earlier this year: MacAPPC emulates SNA Logical Unit 6.2 and Physical Unit 2.1 for communication with SNA hosts. Orion, which currently numbers AT&T, Apollo Computer, Olivetti, Philips, Prime Computer, Honeywell Bull, Banyan Systems, NCR, and Intel among its 30-plus OEM customers, will continue to market its products to third parties.
