AT&T’s Comdex announcements included a 10Mbit-per second version of the StarLAN network and a new top end 3B2/700 processor for the 3B2 range, said to handle 80 users and to take performance up to a potential 9 MIPS. The machine provides 5 MIPS in its basic configuration with one 22MHz WE32200 processor: adding one, two or three WE32100 processors takes performance to 7.5, 8.5 and 9 MIPS respectively. The boards are also available as field upgrades for the 3B2/500 and 3B2/600. Prices for the 3B2/700 range from $69,000. AT&T also announced several SCSI peripherals for 3B2s, and a main tenance release of System V for the processors, confusingly named System V.3.2, which includes menu driven, multi-window file and dir ectory management system, Framed Access and Command Management. The new features are available as V.3.2 for the 3B2/300 and /310 in June, and as V.3.2.1 for the 3B2/500, /600, and /700 in July. AT&T also announced the expected 10Mbps vers ion of the StarLAN local area net work for twisted pair, co-ax and fibre connections: in addition rel ease 3.0 of the StarLAN software is said to halve network response times and to use the OSI Open pro tocols up to the transport layer.
