PCMCIA MOBILE ACCESS SERVER SYSTEM LAUNCHED BY DAYNA

By CBR Staff Writer

Salt Lake City, Utah-based Dayna Communications Inc has announced DaynaLINK for ARA, a PCMCIA mobile access server system for Macintosh users. The company says its offering is the first to provide access to local networks for remote and mobile users through PCMCIA data and facsimile modem cards. According to Dayna, the DaynaLINK hardware supports up to eight high-speed PCMCIA Type II data and facsimile modems. It also features a PCMCIA Type II slot for Type III or Type II ROM cards, which can be used to install additional services, protocols, memory and network media, says the company. Initially, the product will support dial-in for AppleTalk clients only. However, it says that it will provide upgrade modules that plug directly into the DaynaLINK server over the next 18 months. These will include dial-out, facsimile in and out, Simple Newtwork Management Protocol, Integrated Services Digital Network, wireless wide area network, and local wireless access. Additional protocols, such as IPX, TCP/IP and NetBEUI for Windows will also be available in the future, says the company. Also promised are network media expansions to Token Ring and Asynchronous Transfer Mode through PCMCIA expansion cards. The company says that the product’s MobiOS multi-tasking operating system automatically configures modems from ‘most major manufacturers’ without user intervention. Under MobiOS, PCMCIA modem cards are hot-swappable and do not require the system to be restarted when they are installed or removed, adds Dayna. It will be available in August but Dayna is coy about the price.
