Bay Networks Inc has added new Ethernet switches, hubs and converters to its BayStack range. It has also launched an entry- level switch from its Commercial Business Unit. The BayStack products are aimed at users hoping to prolong the move away from Ethernet by expanding the bandwidth of their existing networks and, says the company, targets the mid-tier to enterprise customer. The new BayStack products include Model 302T and 302F enterprise workgroup segment switches, the BayStack 50 Series Hubs for multi-workstation cubicles and small workgroups, and the BayStack 30 Fast Ethernet Converters aimed at enabling workgroups to migrate to Fast Ethernet. The BayStack 302 switches ship pre- configured with eight 10Base-T ports in halfduplex configuration and either a 100Base-TX or 100Base-FX port in half or full-duplex configuration. The BayStack 302 has 16,000 MAC addresses for large workgroups, fiber downlink capability and full integration with Bay Networks’ Optivity network management software. The Model 2216T is an Ethernet switch for entry-level desktop connectivity. It has switched 10Mbps bandwidth to the desktop through 16 half-duplex 10Base-T ports and 1,042 MAC Media Access Control adresses per switch. A half-duplex 100Base-T unshielded twisted pair port that can be configured for full-duplex operation to servers or wiring closets is standard. Additionally, the Model 2216T can be installed and configured through a menu- driven configuration program accessed through the front panel serial port. The BayStack 50, 51, and 52 hubs will be available in four, eight and 16-port models respectively. BayStack 302T and 302F enterprise workgroup switches are priced at $2,500 and $3,000 respectively. The Bay Networks Model 2216T desktop switch, also available immediately, is priced at $2,125. The BayStack 50 Series Hubs are priced at $150 for the four-port, $300 for the eight-port and $500 for the 16-port. All three hubs will be available in February. The BayStack 30 Converters are priced at $1,100 for the 30T speed converter and $1,500 for the 30F media converter. Both are available now.
