CABLETRON USES ASIC TO INCREASE ETHERNET BOARD FUNCTIONALITY, CUT COST

By CBR Staff Writer

Rochester, New Hampshire-based Cabletron Systems Inc is busy blowing its own trumpet about the degree of integration that it has managed to cram into its new Ethernet cards. The company is using its own application specific integrated circuit and says that surface mount technology has provided the means to manufacture the cards in much higher volumes at much lower cost. But the announcement contained no hint as to what the end user will have to pay and the only comment that we could extract from the UK sales operation was that they were still ramping up production in the US and I don’t think that marketing have organised a pricing structure for them yet. Watch out for those prices when they do arrive though; after all we’ve been told how cheap they are to manufacture.
