Bay Networks Inc, which first adopted First Virtual Corp products for delivering Asynchronous Transfer Mode traffic to the desktop early last year (CI No 2,845), is now in even deeper with Ralph Ungermann’s new company. First Virtual Corp – not to be confused with San Diego-based First Virtual Holdings Inc, developer of the VirtualPIN technology for securing Internet commerce – exploits Cambridge, UK company Advanced Telecommunications Modules Ltd’s model for delivering Asynchronous Transfer Mode traffic to the desktop at low cost, and Bay is now to offer offer First Virtual’s entire video networking product line for the deployment of desktop multimedia applications in Asynchronous Transfer Mode environments. The extended relationship enables Bay to build comprehensive video networks to connect both existing room-system conferencing units as well as to participate fully in the world of desktop video, the company says. Business quality video networking and collaboration products from First Virtual, combined with our Centillion switching architecture, provides multimedia capabilities throughout the enterprise from room- systems, desktops, local and wide area network backbones to branch offices, claims Dick Eyestone, senior vice-president for the Enterprise Business Unit at Bay Networks. The First Virtual products that are now available from Bay Networks include Media Gateways – Asynchronous Transfer Mode video network gateways for ISDN, T1 or E1 – at between $12,000 and $14,000; Media Storage Servers – Asynchronous Transfer Mode-attached video-on-demand servers, priced at between $9,000 and $109,000 for between three and 100 hours of video cache; and V-Caster, an Asynchronous Transfer Mode-attached live broadcast distribution server, which sells for $26,800.
