Relocated to Fremont, California, Grand Junction Networks Inc, the firm that started the quest for 100Mbps Ethernet brouhaha, has begun shipping what it claims is the industry’s first dual standard 10Mbps/100Mbps Ethernet hubs and 100Mbps Ethernet adaptors. In fact there are only a couple of Fast Ethernet ports in the new FastSwitch 10/100. The other 25 are standard 10Base-T 10Mbps private Ethernet ports, one of which is designed primarily as a link to the corporate backbone. The idea, presumably, is that the two 100Mbps connects are used specifically as links to file servers. Grand Junction quotes an impressive aggregate forwarding bandwidth of 220Mbps for the box. At the personal computer end of the link, Grand Junction has added the FastNIC 100 EISA, a 32-bit network adaptor to provide the 100Mbps link between the EISA-based server and FastSwitch Fast Ethernet port. It comes with ODI drivers at $400. The Fastswitch is $7,250.
