ENCORE ADDS ANNEX II UNIX SERVER

By CBR Staff Writer

Adding to its Ethernet and TCP/IP terminal server product line, Encore Computer Corp, Marlboro, Massachusetts has introduced Annex II. Available either as a 32- or 16-port unit, the Annex II offers added performance and is claimed to be easier to install for both Unix and non-Unix applications – at a lower cost per port than ever before, claims Encore. The Annex II was originally designed to front-end Encore’s Unix-based parallel processing computer system, and incorporates a National Semiconductor 32016 processor and an Intel 82586 Ethernet controller, and larger memory space than the Annex I, providing support for as many as 256 sessions; there is also a new rack mountable chassis design for ease of installation; and the use of 50-pin telco electrical connectors for port connection provides a standard way to interface to a variety of systems. Priced at $8,500, the Annex II terminal server has a per-port price of $265 for the 32-port version, and is available for customer shipment in the US immediately – some have already gone to several major customers.
